Return to God: A Journey through Lent

Join us for a 40 day journey through Lent to Easter. Every day in Lent, we will offer reflections from Good Shepherd parishioners. We encourage you to comment and engage with these daily reflections as you follow along with your devotional, "Drawn to the Cross." We wish this to be a daily conversation with you and we welcome your comments and thoughts. Please comment in the daily blog!
