Faith Formation: News
The May 1, 2017 Confirmation date with both Good Shepherd and St. John Bosco going to St. Joseph Church along with the regular members has been upheld. The Confirmation will take place at 5:00 PM. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but we will just have to make the best of the situation. Schedules of all us will have to be adjusted. The Sunday Confirmation class will participate in the 10:00 AM Mass on October 30th. The Monday Confirmation class will participate in the 4:30 PM Vigil Mass of All Saints on October 31st. While there will be no classes on Monday, October 31, we encourage students to attend the 4:30 PM Vigil Mass.

From Our Music Ministry
- We have introduced a new Mass setting, “The Mass of Christ the Savior.” It is the Mass setting that is most widely used in our diocese at the present time. A copy of the music will be placed in each pew for the congregation to follow along. As the cantors begin reviewing the new music, we ask for your full participation. The music is beautiful and lively and will enhance our worship in giving glory to God.
- The Hymn and Responsorial Psalm Selections from August 28, 2016 (22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time) to October 23, 2016 (30th Sunday in Ordinary Time) are now available on the “Downloads” page of our website.
