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.

Summer Mass Schedule

Beginning, Easter Sunday, the Sunday Mass at St. Patrick, Aurora will be at 9:00 a.m.

Beginning with the Second Sunday of Easter, April 7, the Saturday Mass at St. Michael Church, Union Springs will be celebrated each week at 5:00 p.m. The Summer schedule will run through the Fall.  


Emmaus Youth Group

is meeting every Sunday at 6:00-7:30pm at St. Alphonsus Church (in St. Joseph’s School) in Auburn. There are both Junior High and Senior High groups. I encourage you to check it out over the summer. The weekly meetings lead up to various youth retreats including a trip to the Youth Rally in Steubenville, Ohio. Prayerfully consider checking out one of the Sunday gatherings as this could be a life changing experience for your child.  If anyone needs a ride, we could carpool. Any questions, please let me know.

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.
