Good Shepherd Catholic Community is a catholic parish.

Prayer for Priesthood Vocations
Almighty and eternal God, in your unfailing love you have provided ministers for your Church. Grant us in our day worthy and fitting priests to serve and sanctify your people. Inspire a generous and courageous response in the hearts of your people, and increase the ranks of the Order of Priests. Confirm and sustain those who are already ordained to carry on the work of Christ, the Good Shepherd, preaching the Gospel and bringing your holy people into one in Christ. We make this prayer in the name of Christ the Lord. Amen.
Thank you for your generous support of your parish. You can give your financial support either by mailing your contribution envelope to the parish office or by giving electronically through WeShare
