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.

GSCC Parish Lenten Retreat     

This year we will be having a Parish Lenten Retreat on the evenings of Sunday March 18 to Wednesday March 21.  Fr. Mark McDonald, M.S.C. who has served as Superior General of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart since 2006 will be our retreat leader. The retreat will be held at St, Patrick Church in Moravia.  Each evening of the retreat a soup supper will be offered in the church hall followed by the retreat presentations by Father McDonald in the church.  Father Mark McDonald will be preaching at all the weekend Masses on March 17/18 to introduce himself and to set the tone for the retreat. More information and details about the retreat will be forth coming.   I encourage you to mark your calendar for these Retreat days and I hope that you will be able to attend.  Arrangements for carpools will also be made.

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.
