To live by Faith    to be known by Love    to be a voice of Hope


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.

A Blessing Before Summer Vacation:

 Take time to claim your strength; they are gifts of God.

Take time to have fun; it’s God’s way of teaching you your strengths. Take time to grow yourself; only you can grow you. Take time to trust yourself; God trusts you. Take time to be self-reliant; it is better than being dependent. Take time to share with others; they will bless you, and you will bless them. Take time to have hope; you are a child of God.

Let’s put ourselves into the hands of the Lord, and pray that God will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer. May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety. May we be generous and considerate, not thinking only about ourselves, but helping others enjoy the blessings of a summertime.

Lord God, Creator of all things, guide our steps and strengthen our hearts during these months of summer and vacation days.

Grant us refreshment of mind and body.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

From Deacon Dennis . . . .

When I was growing up in a city quite similar to Auburn NY it was normal to find a crucifix visible in almost every room in my Catholic friend’s homes. When a child was born, a cross was a common gift to be hung over the baby’s crib. Over the last 25 years this tradition seems to have fallen away and it is more and more common to find no crucifix centrally or obviously placed within a Catholic home. Is this true in your home? If so, has it been always true or has something changed over time and is it time to change back?

In today’s Gospel Jesus “said to all” who wish to be his disciples that they must “take up his cross daily and follow” him. A crucifix hung obviously in the home serves as a frequent reminder of our call to discipleship and the gift of great love shown by God for our salvation. St Anthony of Padua, preached that “Christ who is your life is hanging before you, so that you may look at the cross as in a mirror”…. “Nowhere other than looking at himself in the mirror of the cross can man better understand how much he is worth”.
