In consideration of the icy weather forecast for early Sunday morning, the Annual Meeting is postponed until next Sunday, January 27, 2019.
In line with our inclement weather policy, we will not gather for worship on Sunday, January 20, because the City of Pawtucket has implemented a Parking Ban.
You can experience the Sunday worship style at one of our Episcopal cathedrals via online streaming. The National Cathedral in Washington DC streams its service at 11:15 a.m. Eastern and St Paul’s Cathedral in San Diego broadcasts their service at 1:30 p.m. Eastern (10:30 a.m. Pacific).
Don’t forget to wear something RED this Sunday, June 4, so that the church looks full of fiery red flames. Why? It’s the Feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came on the disciples like tongues of fire.

We will not be having worship at church tomorrow, January 8th, due to the parking ban and snow.
Our inclement weather policy is that whenever there is a parking ban in effect in Pawtucket, activities at Good Shepherd are cancelled. For Sunday worship, we cancel any time there is a parking ban in effect at midnight on Saturday night or later.
Stay warm and safe! You can always worship at home using your Prayer Book and Bible–Morning Prayer begins on page 75 of the Prayer Book. Online, you can find Morning Prayer for this Sunday here.
This morning’s sermon is on Mother Gillian’s blog, here.
We are kicking off a full autumn at Good Shepherd this Sunday. Worship moves back to our regular 10 a.m. time AND back into the church, where renovations and updates are just about complete.
We are also launching our new Sunday School program, Building Faith Brick by Brick. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the parish hall and Sunday School itself begins at 10 a.m. in the Jenks Room. Children join their families in the church service just before the Offertory.
