The Novena runs from August 3 to September 28.

In addition to prayer and fasting, the Bishops are calling on each of us to contact our elected officials on Capitol Hill with timely and important Roe Facts over the 9 weeks of the Novena.
Please contact your Member of Congress and two Senators with this week's Roe Fact.

Christ the Good Shepherd is open during the day for anyone wishing to spend time with Our Lord in the Eucharist. Drop in anytime between 8 AM and 9 PM to pray and meditate--or better still, consider signing up for a regular time slot in the parish office! The graces associated with this practice are incalculable. Should there be sufficient long-term interest demonstrated by people willing to sign up for a regular hour or two, we may eventually be able to have Exposition, in which Our Lord is exposed in the monstrance, regularly at our parish. Pray that this may be so!
CDA Court 2731 meets on the first Thursday of the month, July and August exclusive, at our host parish, Christ the Good Shepherd Catholic Community.
See you at the next meeting, September 6th, at 7pm!
Christ The Good Shepherd Catholic Community, 18511 Klein Church Rd, Spring, Texas 77379, United States
