Welcome to Christian Education
The chief aim of Christian Education at the Parish of the Good Shepherd is for all of God’s beloved children to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18 KJV). We do this by offering faith formation programs for all ages, as well as by holding intergenerational events for the entire community. Along with the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Massachusetts, we are committed to Safe Church, Safe Communities for the protection of children, youth, and vulnerable adults. Come, journey with us as disciples of Jesus the Good Shepherd!
What kinds of Christian Education are offered?
At Good Shepherd, we offer Christian Education opportunities for all ages. See the list and links below to find which of our programs will be the best fit for continuing your education in faith.
