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.

2015 GSCC Parish Picnic

Thanksgiving Food Baskets


Our parish food pantry serves approximately 45 families each month—from Union Springs, Aurora, King Ferry, Moravia & in-between. If you would like to make the holidays a happier time for one of those families, please consider donating a turkey. Parish youth will be volunteering at the GSCC-King Ferry Food Pantry on Sun. Nov. 22 from 11:30-1:30, when food pantry clients will have the opportunity to select turkeys and traditional holiday meal ingredients. If you have a turkey to donate, please bring it to OLL Church or contact Debbie Patrick @ 497-2049. Thank you to all who make financial contributions or bring food donations to our worship sites throughout the year. Your generosity helps to assure that needy families in our community have reliable access to nutritious food on a regular basis.

Grief Work and Complicated Mourning Seminar

A 90 minute seminar on the natural human response to a significant loss we call grief and to grief recovering we call mourning will be offered by Dc. Dennis in St. Mary’s Parish Hall in Auburn on Nov. 18 at 10am, 1pm and 7pm. The seminar will touch on the  physical, mental and spiritual aspects of grief, mourning and the complications that can arise therein as well as preparing oneself and their children for the inevitable losses in live.



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.
