Who We Are


Welcome to the online presence of The Church of the Good Shepherd! I am glad to know you have connected with our faith community and hope you will visit us for worship or one of our many community offerings. We are a welcoming, loving and empowering member of the Towson community. We live our mission by helping people find an approachable place to belong, a compassionate way to help others and a mindful space for personal growth.


Our welcoming and affirming congregation joins with the 150+ churches of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, a diocese in the Episcopal Church USA of the Anglican Communion. I hope you will come and see the ways in which the good news of God’s love is revealed, made known and shared in our church and with our neighbors.  


In Peace, Arianne+
