Home Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

At Good Shepherd we seek to express God’s love in our parish by supporting others in times of need. Coordinated by lay people, each of these ministries remind our parishioners that the community is there in spirit, prayer, and support. Contact the church office if you are interested in any of these ministries.

Bereavement Support Ministry
The Bereavement Support Ministry (BSM) has been formed to help a family plan a reception they wish to hold at Good Shepherd for a parishioner or a member of a parishioner’s family who has recently died. The BSM welcomes volunteers who would like to participate in this ministry. Contact Peggy Barr, pegbar1@yahoo.com, or Priscilla Baetcke, kpbpmb@verizon.net, to learn more about how you can help and to sign up. This is our way of ensuring that Good Shepherd can consistently and lovingly provide this service for its friends and parishioners.
