Senior Fund Created Through the Holy Spirit
The story of how this fund came to be is inspired by the Holy Spirit. Following the deaths of their spouses, Judy and David met and fell in love through their involvement at Good Shepherd. Seniors themselves, they learned that many of their seniors friends at Good Shepherd with fixed monthly incomes experience financial hardships throughout the year. Recognizing how blessed they’ve been and the need to assist our seniors, David and Judy worked with the Good Shepherd Outreach Services Ministry to create this fund in memory of their deceased spouses — Jacob and Victoria. This fund will compliment the Good Shepherd ChristCare program, which provides parishioners with financial assistance for rent, utilities and other more costly expenses.
To date, parishioners have pledged more than $2,000 to help our seniors and more donations are forthcoming, as wedding guests of Judith and David’s will be making donations as nuptial gifts to them.
