“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.
Each time I stand in our wonderful Church to celebrate mass, I know that it is a privilege. In 1952 Msgr. Moran, then the pastor of our parish, and loyal parishioners had a dream. They believed that at the corner of 7th Ave. Pkwy. and Elizabeth St. a beautiful Church could be erected to serve the needs of the Catholic faithful in this Congress Park and Cherry Creek Neighborhood. They not only believed, but they went to work to help raise the funds to build that Church. In December of 1953 their dream came to fruition and our present Church was dedicated by Archbishop Vehr. Since that time parishioners and pastors have worked to maintain our Church and to grow our wonderful school. We are blessed to be a part of a living community which has responded to the needs of each age. Now it is our turn to make a gift to the future. Read More

Devotion of the Month
Month of the Holy Name of Jesus
The month of January is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. After the Blessed Virgin Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit, the angel Gabriel appeared to St. Joseph and told him that the Child’s name should be called Jesus, meaning “God Saves.” According to Jewish law, on the 8th day after his birth a male child was to be circumcised, receive his name, and become a full member of God’s covenant people. According to the old Roman liturgical calendar, the Feast of the Circumcision of Jesus was celebrated on January 1st, eight days after Christmas, the same day that He was given His sacred name. Currently we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God on January 1st and honor the Holy Name of Jesus on January 3rd. For Catholics, Jesus’ sacred name is the object of a special devotion symbolized by the monogram “IHS,” (sometimes called a Christogram), which is the first three letters of the Greek spelling of His name.
