Faith & Athletics

Join us Sunday, August 11 for our 10 am service which will include a special blessing of all of Good Shepherd's (and any community members) athletes. We invite you to wear your team uniforms whether you are an athlete, coach, referee or umpire.

In addition to the actual blessing (at the 10 am service), we will be joined by Bill Tierney, Head Lacrosse Coach at the University of Denver, and has coached seven teams to the National Division 1 Lacrosse Championships (including one at DU). In addition, he is a devout Catholic, and we’ve asked him to speak on the intersection of athletics and religion—both from the athlete’s side, as well as the family’s side. Bill will speak after the 10 am service (around 11:30 am) in our Parish Hall, and in keeping with the theme, the coffee hour will be “ball park food” . . . . think hot-dogs and chips!
