Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Good Shepherd Sunday? 

Good Shepherd Sunday always falls on the 4th Sunday of Easter. Jesus in the Gospel of John describes Himself as the Good Shepherd, who lays down His life for his sheep.  Jesus cares about us and about our safety, so much so that He died for us.  He is the one who seeks out one lost sheep over the ninety-nine.  On Good Shepherd Sunday which is also Vocations Sunday is a perfect opportunity to pray for our priests, and our Bishop who care for the Lord's flock.  Also Good Shepherd Sunday is an opportunity to evaluate how we can become more like the Good Shepherd in our everyday lives. 

What can I expect to gain from this event?

 You will gain a sense of connection with others in the Lord's flock.  The event will be live, virtual and interactive.  There will be prayer, games, short talks from people across Maine, and more!  And of course you will be amused by all the sheep puns that the CYLT has put together for your entertainment. This is surely an event you won't want to miss!
