Tuesday - Girls Group

Girls Group

Believing that the feminine genius is inherent in the soul of every woman, The Girls Group at Good Shepherd seeks to awaken and encourage women's gifts of receptivity, sensitivity, generosity and call to motherhood as taught by Pope John Paul II in Mulieris Dignitatem. To that end, The Girls Group seeks to accompany women on the journey toward holiness and help them to fully embrace their feminine genius by fostering personal growth in a variety of areas:

  • an appreciation of the feminine intellect
  • harmonization of reason and emotion
  • equipping women to experience healthy relationships with God, self and others
  • an understanding of the prophetic role of woman
  • upholding women saints as models of femininity transformed by grace
  • cultivation of the Marian virtues

Guys Group

Heeding the Second Vatican Council's declaration that “whoever follows Christ the perfect man becomes himself more a man” The Guys Group at Good Shepherd strives to foster Christian discipleship among the men of Good Shepherd by pursuing the following goals:

  • empower young men to live an adult Christian life through instruction in the Catholic faith and practical life skills
  • encourage young men in their commitment to Jesus Christ and his Church through group fellowship and prayer
  • exhort young men to live a life of ongoing conversion, growth in Christian virtue, and missionary zeal

Looking to the example of the great male Saints of our Catholic tradition and recognizing the signs of the times, The Good Shepherd Guys Group earnestly endeavors to deepen in young men the awareness of their true masculine identity in Jesus Christ. Thus by “speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ” (Eph. 4:15).
