Welcome!

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.

Catholic Ministry Appeal Update

 

The 2018-2019 Catholic Ministry Appeal is underway!  When you contribute to the Catholic Ministry Appeal, your generosity works in so many different ways! It supports people in need, helps nurture our youth, assists in communicating the good news throughout the diocese, and provides much-needed support for our parishes. It fosters the Gospel message of stewardship – a message that reminds us that all we are and all we have are gifts from God. Locally the CMA has helped to support Catholic Charities, and also supports our youth by sponsoring retreats and leadership conferences for youth as well as organizing the large delegation of youth from our diocese who attends the bi-annual National Catholic Youth Conference.  Listed below is the 2018/19 CMA Update: as of Nov 14th:

I thank those who have already responded to the Catholic Ministry Appeal with your generous support. If you have not yet given your support to the CMA, please do so today. Your gift helps to continue to spread the good news of Jesus our Lord from one generation to the next.

Stewardship:

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.
