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.

Sunday Mass in Aurora will be at 12:15 until Spring

UPCOMING EVENTS:

St. Patrick’s, Moravia  Altar/Rosary Meeting next Sunday, February 7th, after the 8:30am Mass. Included on the agenda is preparation for the Bishop‘s Mass on April 17th. ALL Ladies are welcome. ALL assistance is needed!

Food Panty Sunday, next weekend, February 7th.  You can help to stock our food pantry shelves by bringing a donation to church. Items most needed at this time are Hearty Canned Soups. Thank you for your generosity.

YOUR FAMILY CAN TRAVEL THE WORLD THIS LENT
- without leaving your dinner table. Let the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl be your ticket to global solidarity as you pray, fast, learn and give this Lent in order to change the lives of our brothers and sisters in need.
Join our parish community -  and nearly 14,000 Catholic communities across the U. S. - in a life-changing Lenten journey. Pick up your rice bowl at church. Each bowl comes with a Lenten calendar with short reflections for each day of Lent. You’ll also find recipes from around the world and stories of hope from families that benefit from your donation to CRS Rice Bowl. What you give up for Lent changes lives.

Weekly Bulletins

Men's Retreat  March 11-13

Our American Catholic Heritage, Past, Present and Future will be the theme for 2016.

The Catholic Church has been an integral part of the American Nation from its earliest beginnings.  Please join us as we discuss:

  • What it means to be an American Catholic
  • What our image and our model of the Church is
  • Whether we are a community of saints or a “hospital” of sinners
  • How we fit into the larger worldwide Church
  • Who our American Saints are

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.

FAITH FORMATION UPDATE . . . . .

Souper Bowl of Caring, February 7, 2016: The Souper Bowl of Caring  utilizes Super Bowl weekend in America to empower our youth to fight hunger and poverty in our local community. Its vision is to transform Super Bowl weekend into America’s largest youth-led weekend of giving and serving. 

Young people collect monetary and food donations on that weekend. 100% of the money and food is then given directly to our local Food Pantry. Please help us as we help others!

Last Call! Winter has turned cold! Please consider sharing the Gift of Warmth with those in need.  We will collect new & gently used mittens, hats & gloves for Food Pantry families thru the end of this month.  Your generosity is appreciated!
