Friends of Good Shepherd

The Friends of Good Shepherd is open to all women who wish to engage in fellowship, charity and prayer. We meet in the Gray House several times a year.  We are a charitable and social organization dedicated to the Church and family. Through social and fundraising events, we support several organizations, including many programs in our parish and community. We also assist the Good Shepherd Knights of Columbus Council #5573 in various activities, including the Lenten Fish Fry.

St. Vincent de Paul

The goal of St. Vincent de Paul is to bring hope to the hopeless by supplying love, food, clothing, assistance, and other emergency needs. The society helps the poor and those with temporary needs as well. It is a Catholic ministry that sees the face of Christ in the faces of those who are suffering.
