Welcome to our Catholic Community Website


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.

Welcome to Wells College Students

A special welcome to the students from Wells College to our parish community. I am looking forward to meeting you. If you are interested in being involved in music ministry, or other liturgical or parish ministries, please know that your involvement in our parish during your years at Wells is welcomed and encouraged. The college years are an exciting phase of your life and faith journey, as you begin this academic year I offer you my assistance if I can be of help in anyway. So please feel free to contact me through the parish office: located at 299 Main Street, Aurora. Phone # 315-364-7197. Next Sunday you are invited to breakfast after Mass as our guest. Hope you can attend.

Father Bill

GSCC Photo Directory

As we head into the fall months we are planning something special for our parish family. Many parishioners have recommended that we do a new pictorial directory for our parish families. I am happy to announce that we have entered into partnership with Lifetouch Directories and Portraits to create a new parish directory. The process is quick and efficient for your family to have your photo in our new directory. You simply sign up, show up at the appointed time, and a few minutes later you are on your way. Each family that participates will receive a free 8” X 10” finished photograph, and a free parish directory. More information will be found in upcoming bulletins. I encourage you all to have your family portrait in our parish family directory. We hope to have as many families and individuals represented as possible (CLICK here or image above to sign up)

2015 Migrant Farm Worker Service Project


Migrant farm workers move throughout the country harvesting the fresh fruits and vegetables we enjoy year-round.  Their year is like a string of beads – a month of employment here, another there, tied together with travel in search of more work. 

Our parish Social Ministry Committee coordinates an annual service project of hospitality and outreach to the migrant farm workers who live and work in our community. There are a variety of opportunities to appreciate, help and care for the strangers in our midst:

Donate gently used items: bedspreads, sheets, blankets, bath towels, blenders, soup bowls, adult spring/fall jackets, adult sweatshirts, radios, videos/DVD’s, playing cards, dominoes, women’s summer scarves, jewelry, shower chairs.

Volunteer as part of a group at the migrant camp to help: serve a Sunday morning breakfast, distribute prizes at BINGO games, set up for educational and wellness programs,  distribute food as part of our mobile pantry, set up for an ecumenical prayer service, or distribute donations of clothing/household items.

If you would like to volunteer and meet our seasonal neighbors, make a donation or learn more about this project, contact Debbie Patrick at 497-2049 or
