Our Parish

Welcome to the parish of Good Shepherd, Churchtown.

It is our hope that our website will contribute to uniting all who live here and help to build up community, so that people will be fulfilled in their own lives and families, and be willing to share their time and talents for the benefit of their neighbour, parish and community.

Good Shepherd Parish Church

The following pastoral arrangements remain in place in the Parish of Good Shepherd until further notice:

At present, there is no limit on the numbers attending Masses and services. However, we do invite people to continue to adhere to all the safety measure before, during and after all Masses in order to keep people safe.  Please ensure you continue to wear a face covering and sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the church. Please continue to use the marked entrance and exit doors. As the church needs to be well ventilated at all times the exit doors will remain open during Masses. We will do our best to make sure the church is as warm and comfortable as possible.

The present arrangements for the distribution of Holy Communion will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Music at our Masses will continue to be provided by our Cantors and Organist with all protective measures in place.  The Offertory procession and sign of peace will remain omitted. Further updates will be published as the need arises.
