The Outreach Committee is the central hub off of which all of Good Shepherd’s Outreach projects extend (like spokes on a wheel). The Committee meets several times each year to discuss and plan upcoming events and projects. All are welcome to join the Committee; just come to the meeting!
There are a number of different ongoing outreach efforts at Good Shepherd, and we also organize several different projects each year. We have a three tiered focus to outreach: Local, Domestic, and International. Each tier has a single year-long focus that involves the entire parish. Each tier also has one or more major outreach efforts that are supported by the parish through parish-wide events or individual efforts.
Our parish-wide local focus is our partnership with the Community Center of Northern Westchester. In addition, we support several other local Outreach offerings, including Episcopal Charities, Support Connection, and we offer our space for a variety of outside groups and uses.
Our parish-wide domestic focus is the Episcopal Relief & Development US Disaster Program. We also have an annual Relay for Life team in support of the American Cancer Society.
Our parish-wide international focus is the Carpenter’s Kids Program. We also support and have a missioner for the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
