The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd welcomes the Reverend William J. Cavanaugh, who recently accepted our call to serve as Missional Priest-in-Charge.
Rev. Cavanaugh grew up outside of Philadelphia went to Seminary in New York and upon graduation took a position in San Antonio, Texas. Liking Texas he spent the bulk of his ministry there, with an 8 year detour on the west coast in Oregon. Serving 14 years at the Church of the Epiphany in Richardson, Texas, he retired last July and then moved to Connecticut to begin this new chapter with his spouse, the Reverend Ellen Tillotson.
“Let me say first of all how much I enjoyed being at Good Shepherd this past Sunday, “ declared Rev. Bill Cavanaugh after his first service. “I am looking forward to being part of the Good Shepherd community as we together move forward. Serving as a parish priest is a joy and privilege. Helping people and communities grow in their love of Jesus Christ and in making a difference in the world is what energizes me—and I am eager to see what God will be up to here at Good Shepherd in the months ahead!”.
The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is located on 680 Racebrook Road, Orange, Connecticut. Sunday service times include Rite II Holy Eucharist without music at 8 a.m. and Rite II Holy Eucharist with music at 9:30 a.m. For more information about The Church of the Good Shepherd’s many other programs, please call the Parish Office at (203) 795-6577, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit our website at www.thegoodshepherdorangect.org, and, of course, check our Facebook page www.facebook.com/cgsorangect for frequent postings.
