Good Shepherd 2018 Parish Directory
We are very excited to announce a new Parish Directory for 2018. Photographers will be onsite in February. However, we have arranged for photographs to be taken at Bettinger Photography in Denver for those families who would like to have their photos taken sooner. With the holidays approaching this is a wonderful opportunity, especially for families with college students returning home for the holidays. Families included in the directory will receive a complimentary directory and 5x7 portrait. We hope to have all of our members participate. To schedule a sitting with Bettinger Photography call 303-400-6023. You may direct general questions regarding the directory to Cristin Penning at 303-261-1653 or email@example.com.

Walking with Purpose
Join us for the bible study program aimed at bringing women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They offer personal study and small group discussion which link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. Good Shepherd will offer this 22 week session starting on October 16th. For more information, please click HERE.
Choosing a Catholic College
Many Catholic colleges offer secular and religious degree programs, encouraging Catholic students of all backgrounds to stay connected with their faith; however, with over 250 Catholic colleges in the country, it can be difficult for Catholic students to narrow down their decision. TheBestColleges.org is here to help with their 2017 guide to choosing a Catholic college. In addition to connecting students with accredited Catholic colleges, this resource provides tips on what questions students should ask to find a school that fits their needs.
