MARCH OF THE UNQUALIFIED 1:44
"God can't use me or, at least, shouldn't use me." We've probably all thought that at some point in our faith walk and used that line to get out of going to Church or taking part in a Ministry at Church. Some of us think that we're not evangelizers, for reasons known only to us. However, studying the Bible shows us that many flawed people allowed themselves to be used by God in powerful ways. They were just as unqualified as I am. So what's my excuse now?
COME! EXPERIENCE THE HOSPITALITY!
Good Shepherd Parish was officially formed in July 2006 as a result of the mergers of Annunciation, Our Lady of Sorrows, St. Anthony, and St. Rose parishes. With the generosity, assistance and prayers from our Alumni of Annunciation, Alumni of Our Lady of Sorrows, Alumni of St Anthony / Class of 1961, St Anthony High School Classmates Message Board and the Alumni of St. Rose, we continue to provide outstanding service to our neighboring community.
We work in concert to help build God's Kingdom here on Earth through the combined efforts of our Commissions and Councils - Christian Service, Education, Evangelization, Finance, Stewardship & Worship; our Ministries - Eucharistic, "Elders" (our latest addition to Ministry, where we honor our elders who are held in high esteem), Hospitality, Lectors, Music, Young People, Outreach, Food at the Door, and Nursing Home Scripture Services; our Parish Catechetical leaders; and our outstanding volunteers.
We are members of the Renaissance Vicariate - one of the largest and most diverse vicariates in the Archdiocese of Detroit and the State of Michigan. The Renaissance Vicariate is composed of 17 Parishes in Detroit from various economic, cultural, and social perspectives. We support The Connection, which seeks to connect Detroit young adults, ages 18-35, with opportunities to worship, share their faith with each other, provide service and outreach, socializing, catechesis, and leadership development.
We would be blessed and pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are, as we are more than happy to help. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 10 am- 4 pm.
We are located approximately 1 mile east of Belle Isle, and just west of the Roostertail Restaurant, directly across form the Gregory Boat Company, just north of the Mayor of Detroit Manoogian Mansion, and west of the new Jefferson Village homes, and east of The Jeffersonian, Shoreline, and Harbortown Condominiums and Apartments, and just north of the new River Walk along the Detroit River.
