This ministry is based on the Gospel of Mark, where Joseph of Arimathea took responsibility for the burial of Jesus. At Good Shepherd we are dedicated to see to our brothers and sisters on their way to Eternity. Parishioners band together to form the Arimatheans and attend all funeral Masses for Parishioners in order to show their support for families and to pray for our deceased brothers and sisters. We are a group of volunteers that come together to support our families and friends during this time of sorrow by honoring their loved one in death. There are no meetings, no dues, simply the gift of love and the ability to attend a few services a year to comfort the family of the deceased and see our brother or sister Home by filling a few pews and lending our voices in prayer. This is a work of charity and mercy, and is a way to accompany our community and share the Love of Christ with them.
Adults over 18 years old welcome. Parishioners are welcome to join and attend any Mass convenient to their schedule.
Please contact Kathy Nuspl, 717-695-0035, for more information.

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL
God of heavenly wisdom, you have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor.
Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life, and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.
O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise,
courageous, and loving leaders of the Church. Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.
May the Holy Spirit fill us with the reverence for God’s creation and compassion for all God’s children.
May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God, and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope
prepare us for the fullness of the world to come. Amen.

Girl Scout Programs
Girl Scouting builds knowledge and self-confidence in young girls in grades K through 12 through the earning of various badges, signs and awards. Friendships and sensitivity to others are developed by learning to respect the needs, feelings and rights of others when making decisions and setting goals. Most importantly, they learn how to contribute to society in the spirit of faith and love. Our Girl Scouting programs are sponsored by the Parish Council of Catholic Women and include Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors.
