The Good Shepherd Catholic Community




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

Do you feel alone? Are you frustrated or angry with each other? Do you argue or have you stopped talking to each other? Does talking only make it worse? Are you going in circles at counseling?

You Can Help Your Marriage!

Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi, meaning rediscovery) helps couples through difficult times in their marriages. So many couples struggle alone with their difficulties. Retrouvaille offers those stuck in a rut, the chance to rediscover a loving relationship in their marriage by connecting with other couples who made it through their difficulties.

You are NOT alone, this world-wide Catholic program has helped tens of thousands of couples.

Our next program starts April 21st, please call 585-293-1552 with confidential questions or website at

Starting Tuesday, February 21, and continuing every Tuesday in Lent, the Bl. Solanus Casey's Doorway will be open for spiritual enrichment opportunities to help you navigate through Lent. The Doorway opens following the 9 AM Mass at St. Francis with coffee and spiritual chit-chat in Nacca Hall. You can then head over to the lending library in our offices next door and catch a good book to read. Deacon Dennis will be available then through noon for drop-in brief spiritual guidance in his office. Those wanting a longer time to discuss deeper concerns can make an appointment in advance for Tuesday afternoon or early evening. Appointments can be made directly with Deacon Dennis 315 406 1538 (VM/text).
