Children's Liturgy of the Word
Children’s Liturgy is offered on Saturdays during the 4:30 PM Mass and Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass throughout the year. Children entering K through 2nd grade are invited to participate. After opening prayer, the priest/deacon will dismiss the children to the conference room where leaders will reflect on the day’s readings on a child’s level. Children will return to Mass after the homily. No registration is required.
If you are interested in volunteering as a teacher or helper, please contact Sue Kroupa at 812-449-3740 or firstname.lastname@example.org. High School age volunteers are welcome to assist our Adult leaders.
[Picture] Rite of Enrollment during 10:30 AM Mass
This program is designed to prepare tenth grade students for the Sacrament of Confirmation. A series of meetings and activities help students reflect upon their own personal faith and relationship with God and deepen that faith through prayer, service, and the building of relationships with other Catholics. Confirmation preparation generally begins in May with the Sacrament bestowed in November. Requirements and dates are available on the parish website. For more information, please contact Sue Kroupa at 812-449-3740 or email@example.com.
All are invited to join in the weekly Men's Rosary at Good Shepherd Catholic Church every Saturday starting at 6:00 AM.
Order of Christian Initiation for Adults (formerly RCIA, now OCIA)

Anyone interested in learning more about joining the Catholic Church is encouraged to become a candidate and participate in preparation which generally occurs from October to Easter.

The Religious Education Ministry, in partnership with parents (the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith), will provide opportunities for all parish youth to grow in knowledge, understanding and practice of the Catholic faith. The ministry aims to serve children entering K-8th grades with enrollment each August and Sunday classes continuing through April. More information is available in the Good Shepherd Religious Education Handbook. Contact Dan DeCastra for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
This ministry addresses the Holy Father regarding the meaning of vocations and how a person should respond to God’s calling. This calling embraces God’s mission for each of us and how we should strive to carry out God’s mission through education, prayer and counseling. All are called by God to serve the church; each person by a specific vocation - Single/Ordained/Religious/Married
