We thank you for visiting with us today.

If you do not have a parish family of your own, we invite you to join our parish family.
Good Shepherd Catholic Community is a catholic parish.
Catholic comes from the Greek meaning universal, international or all inclusive, and so, everyone is welcome here, no matter who you are, where you come from, your race, language or lifestyle, your age or income. Everyone is welcome here because we are all God’s family and this is his house

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.

Eucharistic Revival Resource  20 Answers: The Eucharist:     

is a booklet prepared by Catholic Answers to learn not only what the Church teaches but also how to defend these essential teachings of Christ in a doubting world. We have obtained copies for our parish family to take home and study through the generous funding of the Everest Foundation for Family Enrichment. Please pick up a copy and take a few minutes each day to reflect on a question or two to help draw your closer to Christ's Real Presence during these weeks of Ordinary Time prior to Lent. The questions do not have to be read in order, so look at the index and pick a question that invites you to study the answer that day. Remember there is no Church without the Eucharist and there is no Eucharist without the Priest; so please continue to pray for the success of the Eucharistic Revival and for more vocations to the priesthood!  Booklets are available in the vestibule of each of our churches.


Adult Faith Formation is being held on Wednesday at 6:30pm in the St John Bosco Faith Formation Center (basement of the St Francis Office). We have started the 10-Week study of Bishop Barron’s Catholicism Series.
