Human Concerns Committee

Everyone from the parish is asked to participate in Human Concerns in whatever way they can.  This committee is not a formal committee, but is broken into many sub-categories; some of them are listed below.   We are all called to help, wherever help is needed. Whether it be through a phone call, praying for others, sending a card, or any act of love, you are part of this committee!

The Good Shepherd Human Concerns include:

  • Funerals/Bereavement  (Preparation and serving of funeral luncheons, and assisting people with planning of funeral liturgy.)
  • Nursing Home (Includes Monday evening music and prayer with Distribution of Holy Communion to residents; Tuesday Rosaries, and Mass on the second and fourth Thursdays each month.)
  • Communion and Visits to Sick and Shut-ins (Holy Communion, home visits and/or meals for the sick, Shepherd Knitter prayer shawls, etc.)
  • Monthly birthday socials (Set up/clean up)
  • Respect Life (Education, Theology of the Body, assisting with local pregnancy center services or events, help with new moms as needed)
  • Food Pantry (We offer a small pantry to help families in the Rib Lake area.  Donations of nonperishable food items are welcome.)
  • Much, much more!

If you wish to be involved in any of these concerns, call the parish office.
