In this sense, members are encouraged from both congregations to join in as volunteers at the Social Work Committee. Anyone interested may contact the Dean, the Rector, or the Social Work Committee members, namely, Jean Samaniego and/or Ellie Zúniga.

Last week's book sale was a huge success. We managed to raise over s/.12,000 plus $140! Thank you so much to everyone who came to spend the day with us buying books, cakes and coffee.
These funds will go towards running costs of our Cathedral, which is currently running at a deficit, and we need to get our building ready for Civil inspection soon. A portion of the funds will also go towards our social work and some of the projects they have going on.
Finally, a huge thank you to all our volunteers, we couldn't have the sale without you baking, selling, putting books out and packing them away, as well as sharing our event on social media.
If you have any photos you'd like to share with us the tag us on facebook or instagram @goodshepherdlima
We'd love to see what you saw!
We look forward to seeing you all again next time, but before that we have our Christmas Bazaar on December 1st, we will have the books out again as well as so much more going on.
Keep following us for more information.
Let the planning begin.....
It may only be August, but our cogs are fully in action for preparing for our upcoming Christmas Bazaar and we need your help! So what can you do to help:
1: While you are having your ‘Spring Clean’ over the next couple of months, we encourage you to donate any items that you no longer use for us to sell in our stalls. For Esther’s Closet we take all men’s, women’s and children’s used clothes, as well as shoes, handbags, accessories and jewellery.
If you have any spare hangers you could donate for use during the sale, please also drop them off. We also take household goods, toys and general bric-a-brac for the White Elephant stand.
If your items are clean and in good condition, please bring them to the cathedral anytime during the week.
2: Is there something you could donate for the raffle? Perhaps 2 or 3 or 4 going in on something bigger/nicer that will help to sell more tickets. Do you know of someone who owns a hotel, spa, restaurant, etc. who might donate a voucher for the bazaar? The church office can send an official letter, if that will help in getting the donation.If not for the raffle, our games also need prizes, so donations of any size and for any age are welcome.
3: If you would prefer to get your hands dirty to help, then we are also looking for people to make jams, chutney, lemon curd and marmalades for the church’s sale table. We’re open to classic flavours and trying new things, so give us everything you’ve got.
If you have any queries, questions or suggestions, please get in touch!
