Prayer is foundational in the life of our community. Without prayer, we cannot discern where God would lead us, and without prayer we could not truly care for all inside and outside of our community. The healing ministry of Christ has been experienced here for many decades and prayers for healing continue to be an integral part of our worship. We also sponsor at least one healing mission a year.

Our spiritual formation is a lifelong journey. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to transform us into the likeness of Christ, but we are to cooperate by pursuing the spiritual disciplines of prayer and Bible study. There are opportunities for all ages to engage in these and other of the spiritual disciplines. Click on the photo above for more information.
There has been some kind of a food program at Good Shepherd since 1883. Our current Food Bank has been in operation for over 30 years. We also provide personal/hygiene items, make chemo caps for the oncology chaplains at Florida Hospital, provide Christmas gifts for under-privileged children, sponsor a campus-wide Live Nativity for the community. We give financial support to our missionary to the street children of Sao Paulo, Brazil, to the Good Shepherd Academy in South Sudan, to diocesan seminarians, and to the Diocese of Honduras.

We're privileged to be partnered with Fr. John Daau and Good Shepherd Academy in South Sudan. GSA provides education, food, and water to hundreds of children in a country suffering from poverty and illiteracy. We support GSA regularly through financial giving, prayer, and hosting Fr. John when he visits.
