OCTOBER EVENTS AT SHEPHERD
October 13-14 we will be hosting our Confirmation Fall Retreat and our High School Peer Ministry Leadership Retreat at Gustavus College.
For more information see Sister Tashina
Service of Anointing and Prayer
Join us for a worship Service of Anointing and Prayer on October 15th at both services. This will be a unique service that will focus on the importance of prayer in our lives and how prayer connects us more deeply with God. We will also welcome Spiritual Director Sarah Cledwyn to be with us once again as she guides us in a time of centering prayer as a contemplative practice from 9-10:00. We are grateful that Sarah will be with us over this next year through our participation in the St Kate’s Lilly grant funding. Mark your calendars!
