Memorial Service on Tuesday, November 22
On Tuesday, November 22, many of the families and friends of deceased members of our parish and relatives of our parishioners were remembered in a special service prepared by Sr. Zita Simon, O.P. This is truly a very meaningful and comforting prayer service for family and friends of the deceased. We want to express special thanks to Sr. Zita for her caring and compassion that she shows to so many in their time of loss. Her kind and gentle service to the families’ needs give solace and open the minds and hearts of these people to God’s healing graces. Special thanks to Sr. Zita Simon.
The Memorial Service this year remembered 80 of our deceased parishioners and family members of our parishioners who have died in the last year.

Our Congratulations to Sr. Kathleen Loughrin, Winner of the Catholic Charities Diocesan Leadership Award.
We are so pleased to recognize the achievement and dedication of our dear Sr. Kathleen Loughrin. Sr. Kathleen received the Diocesan Catholic Charities Leadership Award for 50 plus years of nurturing, guiding and leading our children. We at Good Shepherd have been so privileged to have her talents and service for over 25 years as principal at our St. James School. Her retirement from the principalship of our school has not limited her dedication and service to St. James and our parish. Sister Kathleen is at school every day mentoring and supporting our teachers and students.
Thank you, Sr. Kathleen, for your Christian service and dedication to our children and parish.
We are very proud of our St. James students who participated in the Veterans’ Museum’s Day Celebration of our Veterans. Our 5th-8th graders brought Thank You cards made by them and their “buddies” in Kindergarten-4th Grade. The 7th and 8th graders participated in a question and answer segment with the Veterans with questions the students had prepared ahead of time while the 5th an 6th graders toured the Museum. All of the students sang patriotic songs along with the Veterans. Check out the link below to see video coverage by WMTV of the day’s events.
