Outreach

Good Shepherd is intensely focused on reaching out to others through a variety of programs and activities, including:


-Children’s Enrichment Workshop (CEW), a collaborative program among three local elementary schools and four Riverside/Avondale churches who offer after-school enrichment programs for students led by church volunteers

-Food for Souls, a program through which we provide a local school with backpacks filled with non-perishable foods for children to take home on the weekend

-Annual school supplies drive, whereby our parishioners donate classroom supplies for teachers in a local elementary school

-Shepherd’s Tree, gift-giving at Christmas to students selected by the principal of a local elementary school

-Thanksgiving meals, prepared and delivered by parishioners to families identified as needing help at Thanksgiving

-St. Catherine’s food pantry weekly food collection and delivery

-Iglesia de la Ascención, Florida, Camagüey, Cuba, our companion parish in the Diocese of Cuba
