Rev. Catherine D. Kerr
The Rev. Catherine Kerr has been at Good Shepherd Church since Ash Wednesday in 2014. Her first career was in journalism, and she was a reporter and editor at newspapers including Newsday, the Times of Trenton and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Her last position before seminary was communications manager at the Pace Center for Civic Education at Princeton University. She received a Master of Divinity Degree with honors from General Theological Seminary in 2012 and a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from General in 2013.
Good Shepherd began in 1953 when 22 people gathered in a local home to worship and pray. Today, our congregation is a diverse blend of backgrounds and ages who are brought together by the desire to serve and worship Christ. Our goal is mutual acceptance, respect, and helping each other to live and grow in Christ's love.
While we are an Episcopal church, most people from Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Evangelical backgrounds feel comfortable with Good Shepherd's worship style. In a unique way, we offer liturgical worship with Holy Eucharist including a biblically inspired sermon in a relaxed manner.
To love the Lord and our neighbor through worship, caring, and service to the world.
Vision for Ministry
To offer a ministry that addresses the needs of sojourners, seekers, and believers who are looking for a quiet, humble haven of God's presence amid our hectic, frenetic world: A serene Center of Christian Prayer for Wholeness in the care and restoration of souls.
