From the Pastor…Fr. McHugh

Faith Formation Coordinator Judy Whitaker has retired after enthusiastically and faithfully serving Good Shepherd’s program for 9 years. Over the years, Judy designed many of our programs for the various sacraments. She worked on the First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation programs. She assisted with the different plays and religious presentations of Faith Formation and was actively involved with the different student retreats over the years. Judy often planned refreshments for Faith Formation events. She often provided refreshments for groups at her own expense. Judy had a real interest in our Faith Formation students and we owe her a huge debt of gratitude. We also thank her for her support of our teachers and Faith Formation staff. I myself am very thankful for her support of me. Katie Ventra will become our Faith Formation Coordinator and will also remain our Youth Minister. Let us do our best to support her!
