To live by Faith    to be known by Love    to be a voice of Hope


For all of you who are new to this site, 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.

Winter Sunday Mass in Aurora is at 12:15PM

 Beginning the weekend of November 26/27, the First Sunday of Advent, we will begin the Winter Mass schedule at St. Patrick, Aurora; Mass will be moved from 9:00a.m. to 12:15 p.m.   We will also be starting on that date a different Winter Mass time for St. Michal Church, Union Springs; Mass will be moved from 5:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  In the Spring, we will be moving back to the previous Mass times.  Please mark your calendars for these changes.  

God bless you, Father Bill

Eternal God, from the very moment of creation you revealed that every good gift has its source in you. You shower your people with abundant blessings and provide for us with your provident care. Help us to use wisely the gifts of the earth that you have bestowed on us. Give us wisdom to use prudently the talents each one has that come from your hand. Afford us the insight to see opportunities to serve in the time you have given to us. May the treasure, talent, and time we possess be placed in service of you for the common good. Amen.
