GSCS Service Project for Haiti

Dear Good Shepherd Catholic Community,

One of our GSCS school families is organizing a service project to help families in need in Haiti.  The project is called Pac-Haiti.  Here is the link for more information:

https://www.pac-haiti.org/

We are collecting new and gently used backpacks for this project.  These backpacks are sometimes the most valuable possession a family has.  Families of 3 or greater can only afford 1 backpack to share for the whole family, if they can afford even that.  Children travel several miles to go to school.  If they finish school they stand a much higher chance of breaking out of the cycle of extreme poverty.  If you would like to donate a new or gently used backpack, you may drop it off at the front entrance of the school.

Thank you for your support!

Mrs. Girten

  • This opportunity is for those persons seeking to go deeper in their faith life.  It reviews the understanding of vocation, call, the ministry of the layperson and charisms.  Participants will use an assessment tool to determine their charisms.  This workshop prepares the person to identify and use their charism to live out faith wherever they are.  This is empowerment for evangelization and intentional discipleship. Those who have attended this workshop in the past have found it to be a rich and life-giving experience.
