As the Steel Magnolias Disappear and Falter

This past year, quite a few of the women who have been the backbones of Good Shepherd have passed on, become homebound, gone to nursing or personal care homes, or moved to be closer to their families in their later years. We have lost Communion Ministers, Bingo and breakfast workers, greeters, RCIA volunteers and good all-around workers and financial supporters of our parish. We need people to step up to help in many areas: daily Mass Communion Ministers, RCIA team members, breakfast and Bingo workers, greeters, Faith Formation teachers and aides, Appeal representatives, etc. Whether we like it or not, we are definitely experiencing a changing of the guard. We need parishioners in the 25 -55 age bracket to fill the positions above. You can call the office or tell me or the persons in charge of the different ministries or activities:

  • Communion Ministers – Dave Kostanesky
  • Breakfast – Marilyn Tedesco
  • Bingo – Carol Eskin
  • Greeters – Debbie Donahue
  • Appeal representatives – Fr. McHugh
  • Faith Formation – Judy Whitaker
  • RCIA – Dr. Barry Kraynack
