Notes from Father Bill

Last weekend, we prayed over the names of parishioners who accepted nominations to serve as Pastoral Council members. After we prayed to the Holy Spirit the following names were selected: Janet Nelson and Steve Cardinal. Also, I have appointed Rita Sheils to the Council so that each of our church communities would be represented. I thank all those who accepted nominations for their willingness to serve. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give the new members of the Council the wisdom and gifts they will need as they begin this new role of service.

Posted by Fr. Bill on June 10, 2018

June is a month of transition for our Pastoral Council.  We will be holding a picnic meeting at the rectory in Aurora on June 18that 6:00 p.m.  The new council members who are beginning their terms of service are asked to attend the June meeting. The current Council and the new members will share a picnic meal together before the business aspect of the meeting is conducted. I would like to thank all the members of the Council for their service to our parish. As we welcome new members I would like to thank the out-going members for their time of service Pat Berry, and Alice Sheerer.  I thank them for their willingness to serve as Pastoral Council members and pray that the Holy Spirit will give them direction as to how they can continue to serve God’s people in the future.  Also, please keep Alice in your prayers; she fell and had a severe break in her arm and it is a slow process of healing for her. 

Also appointed to next year’s Pastoral Council is Emma VanAmburgh as youth-rep.  Jack Fedrizzi, who has served on the Council the past two years.  I thank Jack for serving two  one-year terms on the Council.  Jack will soon be graduated from Moravia Central School, I wish Jack God’s blessings in his future. 

Remaining on the Council from this year to next are, Shannon Williams, Michael Miller, Terry Palmer and Joe DeCaro.   Please keep the newly formed council in your prayers that God will always give them good counsel and help us as a parish to do God’s will.

As our new Council works together we will strive to help Good Shepherd Catholic Community fulfill our parish Vision and Mission Statements to help us know more fully the love of the Good Shepherd.

 

VISION STATEMENT

To live by faith, to be known by Love, to be a voice of Hope

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Nurtured by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we are called to be a

living example of God’s love.  We defend our faith like St. Michael, spread

hope and love like Our Lady, and evangelize by following the example of

St. Patrick.  We gather together to protect the weak, support the needy,

promote mercy, and encourage those who have drifted away from the faith

to return to the loving folds of God’s flock. 

God’s blessings and peace,  Father Bill
