We welcome visitors, neighbors, and friends every day. If you find yourself in the neighborhood with spare time on your hands, please stop in!
If worship is in progress, feel free to join us! Simply have a seat in one of the pews. For services at the High Altar, leaflets are available at the Welcome Table. For services in the Lady Chapel (to the right of the Altar), leaflets are available on a small table at the back of the Chapel. During worship services, please silence or turn off all mobile devices. We encourage you to participate in the worship service, but you are also welcome to sit quietly and observe.
If you visit when no organized event is underway, you are generally free to explore the Nave and Lady Chapel. Printed self-guided tour pamphlets are available on the Welcome Table or in the Tower Lobby. You might see others quietly meditating or praying before the Blessed Sacrament. Others might be softly speaking with a priest or staff member. While you are most welcome to take photos and roam freely within the public area of the church, we ask that you take care not to disturb others.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Daily services and the early mass on Sunday are simple and “said” and last about 30 minutes. The High Mass (also referred to as Sung Mass) on Sunday is rich ceremonially and musically and lasts about 75 minutes. As an Episcopal Church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, Good Shepherd has, since 1869, been a place where the best of Catholic tradition and openness of the reformation co-exist.
