The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

Psalm 23


THEME OF OUR LITURGY -
The Lord Jesus, our Good Shepherd, calls us each by name,
beckoning us into a deeper relationship with him.

First Reading: Acts 2:14a, 36-41

All peoples called by God will receive the gift of the Spirit if they repent and are baptized.

Second Reading: 1 Peter 2:20b-25
Once we were like straying sheep; but now we have been returned to the shepherd, our guardian.

Gospel: John 10:1-10
The shepherd leads the sheep out into pastures of abundant life.


Jesus says, “I came that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Good stewards are grateful for the gift of life and joyfully share their abundance with others.

“Stewardship by the Book” by Sharon Huekel


Pray for the happy repose of the soul of
John Carraro
who died on April 7th.

May perpetual light shine

Today, Good Shepherd Sunday, is a special celebration of World Day of Prayer for Vocations. The world-wide Church honors all Christian vocations. We are called by name and offered a special gift of a Christian vocation. We pray that we are open to God’s call and ready to accept the gift. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is with us to guide and protect us on our life journey.
