We are into the last week of October already. Good Shepherd parishioners and the students and staff of Bear Lodge High School will enjoy an ice cream and cake social this Thursday, the 28th, at 2:30 in the parish hall. On Sunday, the 31st, Morning Prayer will be read. Our new bishop, the Rt. Revd. John S. Smylie, will be at Good Shepherd for his visitation on the first weekend of November. Included in the weekend will be a soup supper on Saturday night with music and visiting with Bishop John, and on Sunday he will preside and preach. The Sundance Bell Choir will play for us at 9:00 - before church. After worship, brunch will be served and enjoyed before we say 'goodbye for now' to Bishop John.

October has arrived

Since it is October, that means the Diocesan Convention can't be too far off. In fact it is held this week in Laramie on the 7th through the 10th. This means that instead of Holy Eucharist on the 10th, which is the 2nd Sunday of the month, Morning Prayer will be read. Our church delegates to convention are Julia and Steve Christy; JoAnne will be attending as well.
We are already planning for the official Visitation of our new bishop, the Rt. Revd. John S. Smylie. He will be in Sundance from Friday, November 5th through services and coffee hour on Sunday, November 7th. There will be several times for people of the parish to visit with him, to get to know him, and to hear of his plans, hopes and desires for our diocese. Maybe we will even hear him play his guitar and lead us in some singing on Saturday evening!
