The Liturgical Ministries are essential to the celebration of Mass here at Jesus the Good Shepherd. All are called to serve whether as Greeters, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, or Altar Servers.
For the liturgy, “making the work of our redemption a present actuality,” most of all in the divine sacrifice of the eucharist, is the outstanding means whereby the faithful may express in their lives and manifest to others the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church.”
—Constitution on Sacred Liturgy, Second Vatican Council, Dec. 4, 1963
Our Music Ministry
The Music Ministry at Jesus the Good Shepherd is a combination of volunteer and professional musicians actively enriching the liturgy and worship of Mass.
“God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source. Indeed, God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises.”
—Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
