Communications Alert: We want to make sure we are reaching parishioners during this COVID-19 pandemic. Any parishioners who have an email address and are not currently receiving the weekly links to online Sunday Services, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (635-8145) to let the office know you would like to be added to the email distribution list. Services will also be posted on our Facebook page "Church of the Good Shepherd, Saint John NB" and here on our website (goodshepherdsj.ca) by late Saturday or early Sunday morning each week.
Thank you to everyone who is able to still continue with your regular offerings - electronic or otherwise. Whether you are able to still give offerings or not is secondary to the trust that we have in God that our needs both as individuals and as a church family can be met. Lori will be in the church office for her regular hours (Tuesday-Friday 9:00- noon).
If you are willing to consider E-Offering, there is a link to the application on the home page of this website (right side). Lori Maker (635-8145) is your contact if you have any questions or wish to begin with E-Offering.
We are also set up to receive e-Transfer donations:
e-transfer: email@example.com (security: Lancaster)
There is a comment field available in e-transfer where you can put your envelope #.
Pastoral care is still offered as usual with the exception that access has been restricted at the hospitals unless there is a life-threatening emergency - and even then only one visit will be allowed. Please let Jonathan know if you are admitted to the hospital under these conditions or if you would like a pastoral visit (506)-343-7748.
If you need any practical help for example a drive to the grocery store or pharmacy please contact the church office as there are people who are willing to help you in this difficult time.
If someone is on your mind then reach out and call them. Look to God the author and finisher of our faith. He is able to uphold us and help us to stand even in the darkest hour. May God bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you now and forever more.
The Rev. Jonathan Springthorpe
Vestry is currently doing some work on the Rectory to make it ready for the Springthorpe family, so if you can help, please let us know. On Facebook, you can ask to join the group "The Great Rectory Makeover" to see what needs to be done or to follow our progress.
