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.

Our Facebook Page

 

 

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 Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The issue of sexual abuse of children by clergy and others in our Church has caused much pain, alienation from the Church, hardship and understandable anger. I join with our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and my brother bishops throughout the world in expressing deep sorrow for this tragedy. As the Shepherd of this Diocese, I will continue to work unceasingly to ensure that our parishes, schools and every entity connected to our Diocese are safe and holy environments for all. To that end, this section of our website is intended to be a help and resource to all.

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.
