GOOD SHEPHERD MINISTRY

The Good Shepherd Ministry is a ministry of presence, communication, and caring. Each of us is asked to be a channel of Christ’s love by responding to the needs of others and by creating a sense of community. Thus, the parish has been geographically divided into neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has a Good Shepherd who wants to respond to the needs of parishioners in that area — sharing not only in the good times but also in times of need by caring for parishioners when they are ill and giving help and hope when the unexpected happens. The area number for your Good Shepherd neighborhood is listed for each parishioner in the parish directory following the zip code, e.g. Dallas, TX, 75225-002A. We are always looking for volunteers to help with every aspect of the church and would welcome you to bring your talents to Saint Michael.
