From the Desk of the Pastor

I want to first express my gratitude to the Catholic Council of Women who hosted the reception following the Installation Ceremony on Saturday evening. My deepest gratitude as well to our choir for leading us again so beautifully in sung prayer at the Mass. To Father Ben and the whole staff of Good Shepherd Parish, thank you for all you have done to welcome me and help me in settling in here at the parish. You have
certainly helped to make the transition smooth for me. Also, I thank all the people I have met so far who are involved in various ministries of our parish for help in helping me settle in. Finally, to all the parishioners who have sent cards of welcome, support and prayer, thank you so very much for all your kindness. I look forward to a wonderful journey of faith with you. God be with
you all this grace filled parish.

Fr. Phil Burger
