Some Parish Customs at Jesus Our Shepherd

  • Sunday Fellowship… After Sunday Eucharist we continue community celebration by gathering downstairs in the church hall over coffee and bakery, sharing past and present stories of each other’s lives. We consider this to be a helpful bonding experience for our community.
  • First Sunday Meetings… Through baptism we are empowered to make important decisions as community. Unless otherwise noted, we gather on the 1st Sunday of each month immediately after the service.
  • The Prayer Bucket… To hold in honored memory those who graced our lives in times past, we offer a prayerful community remembrance on the final Sunday of each month.
  • The Memorial Candle… During the opening procession, a memorial candle is lit, carried and placed near the altar. This flame honors our deceased members, particularly those in the parish cemetery.
  • Last-Sunday-Of-The-Month Memorial Prayer… To hold in honored memory those who graced our lives in times past, we offer a prayerful community remembrance on the final Sunday of each month.
