“I am the Good Shepherd and I know mine and mine know me.” John 10:14
Welcome to Good Shepherd Catholic Parish, where people of all ages come together to celebrate that we are loved by God and have received the fullness of his mercy through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ.
We are privileged to join Pope Francis and Catholics throughout the world in celebrating a Jubilee Year of Mercy as a time when the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective.
We are a parish community of the Archdiocese of Denver, located in the Congress Park neighbourhood on historic 7th Avenue Parkway. We are a growing community of young adults, married couples, singles and families. We are blessed with an outstanding Catholic school and Faith Formation Program. We also have many active ministries that we encourage you to consider joining, including an adult choir and a children’s choir, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, a wonderful Hospitality Committee, the Men of Good Shepherd, and Endow. In addition, we are always grateful for the service of our parishioners as lectors, altar servers, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, greeters and ushers. Please take a moment to learn about these and many other important opportunities on our “Ministries” page.
Our Parish offers people of all ages a chance to know the Good Shepherd and to be known by Him. I invite you to join us as we grow together in a greater love of God and His people.
We know volunteers don’t sacrifice their time in order to be appreciated in public, but they do enjoy knowing their efforts are making an impact within the community. All of our many ministries are only possible with the help of volunteers. Their dedication to the church and mission are greatly appreciated. We couldn’t be a thriving, successful parish without all of you!

Meet Business Manager & Employee Of The Month
I am a native of Colorado and attended Annunciation grade school for eight years. I graduated from Holy Family High School in 1983, then attended Metropolitan State College, graduating in 1994 with a BS in Accounting. I began my work in the non-profit sector immediately after graduation, accepting a position with the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance & Christian Charity. It was there I knew I wanted to work in a place where I could serve our Lord. I began working at the Archdiocese of Denver in April of 1996. In January of 2001, I transferred to Good Shepherd and have been here since. I am the mother of two beautiful children and the grandmother of four lovely
little girls. In my free time I enjoy reading, dancing & attending Zumba classes.
