Good Shepherd ministries are encouraged to operate as Small Christian Communities incorporating the Five Elements of Community in their meetings and activities. Meetings should incorporate prayer and faith sharing as outlined in the documents listed in the sidebar.
The mission of the Prayer and Liturgy ministries is to support all aspects of communal worship, to ensure adequate preparation for each Mass and each Liturgical season of the year, to encourage parishioners to actively participate in worship activities, and to foster individual spiritual growth and prayer life.
The Music Ministry at Good Shepherd Parish leads the congregation to glorifying Christ through the art of music, providing choir, instrumental and band outlets to enhance the liturgy.
Faith Formation guides, oversees, and enables the faith formation of adults, youth, and children by providing them the knowledge, experiences, skills and community to form their hearts and minds to be faithful and fruitful disciples of Christ.
The mission of the Fellowship & Evangelization ministries is to support activities which promote spiritual renewal and strengthen faith sharing, prayer and fellowship within the parish (individuals as well as families).
The mission of the Mercy & Justice ministries is to support parish social ministry activities related to corporal and spiritual works of mercy, companionship to those in need, education (Catholic social teaching and justice programs), community and global solidarity, and social justice advocacy.
The Community Ministries are individual parish ministries, which are part of larger local, national or worldwide ministerial or charitable organizations.
The Leadership councils and communities serve to direct the ministry activities of the parish as a whole. These councils and communities plan and coordinate the core messages and missions of the parish.
The mission of the Facilities ministries is to oversee and manage the physical care and maintenance of the parish buildings, ground and equipment. This also includes the planning of future material and physical needs of the parish.
