The Church of the Good Shepherd hosts its third annual gala on Saturday, Oct. 18, featuring an evening of Beatles music. “Let It Be” a great night for friends to celebrate, enjoy music, and help raise funds for the church and its mission to serve the community. You don’t need to be a Beatles fan to have a great time; we’re “Just Happy to Dance With You.”
“On a daily basis, the Church of the Good Shepherd serves f Orange and the surrounding areas through mission, ministry and outreach regardless of individuals’ religious affiliation. “Come Together” is the perfect them for this year’s gala as we look forward to welcoming many new and returning friends for the celebration,” said Rev. Ann Ritonia, Rector for the Church of the Good Shepherd. “Our good works depend upon the generosity and support of dedicated volunteers and donations from the larger community.”
The Church’s most well-known program is The Shepherd’s Table, a free lunch program every Wednesday offered at 680 Racebrook Road, available to all. Each week more than one hundred area residents, mainly seniors who come together for fellowship and a warm meal. Additional meals are prepared and delivered throughout the community to those who are too frail or ill to travel. Funds raised will support Shepherd’s Table and other mission and outreach activities which support the needs of the greater community as well as Fisher House at the West Haven VA Hospital.
It doesn’t matter if “Drive My Car” or come by “Yellow Submarine” to the Ballroom at St. Barbara’s at 480 Racebrook Road in Orange. Tickets are $75 per person and doors open at 6pm.
We expect another sold out event “With A Little Help From Our Friends.” If you want to “Twist And Shout,” order your tickets soon by calling the Church of the Good Shepherd at (203) 795-6577 or ordering online at www.thegoodshepherdorganect.org.
