Parish Planning Study
Good Shepherd is implementing a Parish Planning Study to review with parishioners the needed repairs and improvements to our parish buildings and to determine the potential for raising sufficient funds to accomplish the work. Your input is an essential part to the study. If you have not received a survey in the mail, please download the questionnaire, and return it by mail or place it in the collection basket at Mass. All responses are confidential.

Welcome to the Internet site of the Parish of the Good Shepherd. Our Parish is made up of over 4,200 households, ranging from single people to families who are just starting out, to those who have called the Parish of the Good Shepherd “home” for a number of generations.
Hopefully, the various features of this site, some of which include descriptions of the various ministries and organizations, resources for living your Catholic Faith, the history of the parish and a virtual tour of the church, will enable you to know more about the parish if you are already a parishioner or give you a sense of us if you are just “visiting”.
May Jesus the Good Shepherd hold you close to His heart.
