Parish Anniversary Celebration
Located in the Congress Park neighborhood, near Cherry Creek, we welcome you to experience the living presence of Christ in our community of faith. Recently we have been given the great gift of words of encouragement from our Holy Father, Pope Francis. In his Apostolic Exhortation, entitled “The Gospel Of Joy” Pope Francis writes:
“I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”. The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk; whenever we take a step towards Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms.”
In the name of Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd, we welcome you to join us for our regular weekend masses!
Good Shepherd Parish Strategic Plan
Last spring, more than 60 of our parishioners participated in a very important Parish Strategic Plan process. This group examined our parish and created both commendations and recommendations in the following seven areas: Finance; Ministry & Service Outreach; Community & Hospitality; Faith Formation & Sacramental Preparation; Communications; and Facilities. The result is a comprehensive plan that outlines a specific roadmap for the three- to five-year future of our parish community. We are deeply grateful for the time and dedication of the volunteers who worked to complete this plan, as well as to all our parishioners who participated in surveys and small focus groups throughout the process.
Please see below to read the completed Strategic Plan. In addition, we are looking for volunteers who would like to become involved in these different areas of our parish life, and we encourage you to send us an email with your name and contact information, as well as a brief description of how/where you’d like to volunteer. Thank you!
