Together In Mission 2014
In his pastoral letter, “Witness to the New World of Faith,” our Archbishop, Jose H. Gomez, writes: “Through our love for others, we bear witness to the reality of our God who is love. Through our work to make this a society of truth and love, we make God’s love for all men and women a reality in our world.” God bless you for your generous gifts to those in need.

Feb. 27: The Communion of Saints
Mar. 6: Prayer and the Life of the Spirit
Mar. 13: World Without End: The Last Things

Join the Bible Study Group!
We are beginning an in-depth study of St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, which has been called his “most important theological legacy.” St. Paul’s letters are the most influential texts in the New Testament apart from the Gospels. Therefore, studying them is a great way to increase our understanding of the faith. We meet in the Parish Center (504 N. Roxbury Dr.) every other Saturday from 10 a.m. – 12 noon, with a repeat on the following Monday from 7 – 9 p.m.
Attend whichever day is more convenient for you. The upcoming meetings include: February 22 & 24, March 8 & 10, and March 22 & 24. Each meeting begins with a Scripture-based prayer; then we discuss the readings and answer questions.
After a break for refreshments and socializing, the session concludes with a 20-minute video on what we have been studying and discussing. Study materials cost $20, and will be provided at the first meeting. We also offer a Bible for $10. All are welcome to join; and no prior knowledge of the Bible is needed. For more information, please call (310) 285-5425, or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did we get it right?
Late last year, we had a drive to get parishioners’ email addresses and other contact information. Remember the blue cards? All of them have now been processed, and we want to make sure we got the information into the database correctly.
If you go to My Good Shepherd(gsbh.ccbchurch.com) and sign in to our new parish database and communication system, you can review/edit your contact and other information. While you’re there, watch the short video to learn how to set your privacy and communication settings.
If you did not have a chance to submit a contact card, you can still sign in and see if we have your information from our previous database. If we do, please review it and/or correct it. If we don’t, you can sign up and set your preferences for emails, donation envelopes, and other communications.
Any questions, please contact Lucas Flanagan at email@example.com or 310.916.9456.
