Jesus the Good Shepherd What does a shepherd do? How can you be a Good Shepherd? I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and my sheep know me. My sheep hear my voice, And I know them, And they follow me.
Pope Francis the Good Shepherd Quote from Pope Francis ‘To live charitably means not looking out for our own interests, but carrying the burdens of the weakest and poorest among us.’
The Good Shepherd Appeal The Good Shepherd Appeal started in 1903 by Father James Nugent. It was started to help the most vulnerable children and adults in the North West. Last year schools across the Archdiocese raised £56,328.99. Ask your mum, dad, nan and grandad about the Good Shepherd Appeal. How did you help the Good Shepherd last year?
Why is the Good Shepherd Appeal collection during Lent? The Season of Lent is from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. Lent is a time when we think of others before ourselves. Many people choose to give up something they like, or do something to help others. What could you do this Lent?
What could you do for Lent? What are you doing for Lent to raise money for the Good Shepherd Appeal? Why is Lent a good time to raise money for the Good Shepherd Appeal?
What challenges did families face when the Good Shepherd Appeal started in 1903? The Good Shepherd Appeal was started because there were so many poor and needy people. Father Nugent saw a lot of people without any shoes and who were hungry and dirty. They did not have a home to sleep in and they huddled together on the streets in the winter to try and keep warm. Do people live like this today? Is being poor just about not having any money?
Who is Nugent Care? If the Good Shepherd Appeal was started by Father James Nugent, then who is Nugent Care? Nugent Care is the charity of the Archdiocese of Liverpool and was founded in 1881 by Father James Nugent. Today we carry on his work supporting and helping children, adults and the community.
