Good Shepherd is undergoing
a renovation of our historic church
Beginning Monday, May 8, 2017, all Masses and Reconciliation will take place in our Parish Family Center
located on the East side of Elizabeth, in the lower level of the school building.
Mass times will remain the same with the exception of daily Mass which will now be at 7:30 AM.
We look forward to celebrating Mass with you in our temporary home as we undergo this exciting change!
Mass & Confession Schedule
Weekend Mass Schedule:
Saturday 4:00 p.m.
Sunday 7:00 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Saturday 3:00 p.m.
UPDATE: We received the construction permit for the school about three weeks ago. That work has been proceeding on schedule. Finally, we also received the general permit for the Church construction last Monday. With that permit much of last week was spent with the subcontractors now being able to go to the city to pull the permits for their portions of the job. We hope that this week several of these subcontractors can begin working on the project in earnest. We should have a more up to date schedule for the completion of the work in the next two weeks. Please remember in your prayers all of the people who do work in the city permitting office. With all of the construction being done in Denver and everyone having a job to do that is urgent these men and women toil with rules and regulations and are tasked with trying to insure that construction projects are done that will be safe and environmentally sound for years to come. Even though we can be frustrated with delays we should never forget to pray with gratitude for these unseen partners in our renovation project.
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 Precious Blood
The month of July traditionally honors the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. It is the blood of Christ, the Lamb of God, which cleanses from sin, therefore the Church developed a devotion to Jesus' physical blood and its mystical power, just as it did for his Sacred Heart from which his blood poured out on the Cross. The Precious Blood of Jesus courses through the Church spiritually, giving eternal life to the Body of Christ through the sacraments. Many saints had a devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus, most notably St. Catherine of Siena. Devotion to the Precious Blood spread greatly through the preaching of Saint Gaspar del Bufalo, a 19th century priest and founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, and was later approved and recommended by the Holy See. The feast day of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus is July 1st.
