CRS Rice Bowl Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten Program  

If you participated during Lent in the CRS Rice Bowl Lenten Program by putting money in your Rice Bowl during Lent we ask that you count the money you collect in your Rice Bowl and then write a check for the amount with Rice Bowl in the memo line and then mail it to the parish office.  GSCC,  P.O. Box 296, Aurora, NY 13026. It will then be sent  Catholic Relief Services to be use for CRS hunger projects with 25% of the monies received being sent back to support our local food pantries.  Thank you for your generous support.

 

Welcome!

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.

It’s called WeShare and is offered through Liturgical Publications, Inc. (publishers of our weekly bulletin). Here's the web address: https://thegoodshepherd.weshareonline.org/  This platform provides a secure, easy to use system DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR PARISHIONERS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CHURCH.  This system provides bank level security and a very simple, user-friendly interface.   Parishioners have complete and personal control with 24/7 access.  It is flexible in that you can schedule contributions however you like, whenever you like; by bank account or by debit card or by credit card.  it provides complete history as well.  You control it.  You have access at any time.  It provides reports for personal budgets or tax time.  They offer customer service, too. 

Our decision to do this was driven by the desire to offer an easy, safe, and secure way to make contributions to the church, improve consistency of giving, and for the parish save time and money when issuing and processing envelopes. No more worrying about bringing your checkbook or cash to church, or about which envelopes to use.

It is important to note that our traditional methods of giving are not going away: you can still use your envelopes, or make cash or check donations in the collection basket at Mass if you wish to continue to do so.

A number of neighboring Parishes use it. You may want to try it out, see how it works.  Schedule a $1.00 contribution for each week and see if it appeals to you.  When signing up, please remember to include your envelope number in your profile – if you have it. 

 

 

Dear GSCC Parish Family,

 I want to thank all of you for the wonderful retirement  party with lots of delightful food—your thoughtful gifts,   cards and kind thoughts.

     God Bless each of you!  With many thanks!       ~ Cathy Kanalley

Prayer for Vocations

Loving and Generous God, it is You who call us by name and ask us to follow You. Help us to grow in the Love and Service of our Church as we experience it today.Give us the energy and courage of Your Spirit to shape its future. Grant us faith-filled leaders who will embrace Christ's     Mission of love and justice. Bless the Church of Rochester by raising up dedicated and generous leaders from our families and friends who will serve Your people as Sisters, Priests, Brothers, Deacons and Lay Ministers. Inspire us to know You better and open our hearts to hear Your call.  We ask this through our Lord.

 

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.
