Faith Alive In The Heart.
In early 2013, a group of ladies from Good Shepherd’s formed the Living F.A.I.T.H. group. The mission statement discribes them as „A group of women gathering together to provide spiritual and social support to one another, the parish and the greater community by giving of our time, talents and treasures in service“. A big part of the F.A.I.T.H. group is praying.
The Power of Prayer
The first half of the meetings begin with an inspirational greeting. Intentions can be announced or kept private. The rosary is a big part of the F.A.I.T.H. group. A mobile chat group or text messages keep the group connected at other times. Support is found around the hour for friends or family members or even for personal intentions.
The Living F.A.I.T.H. Group meets one morning and one evening a month to volunteer their time. The current project is in cooperation with Light House of Zug. It is here that this group organizes and maintains a clothes room of second hand or donated new clothing. Light House is a charity organization of the Catholic Church of Zug whose purpose is to assist those peole who live on or below the poverty level.
What is poverty?
