Updates from Good Shepherd
Updated Mask Guidance
Directions For Mass Participation  Effective November 23, 2021 – Jan 3, 2022
A new mask mandate for Denver County is in effect until January 3, 2022.  

Please be advised, that you are requested to wear a mask during mass, especially if you are not vaccinated. You may also provide an usher with proof of your vaccination as an alternative.  

Please accept this invitation as a commitment to help our sisters and brothers in the medical community who daily accept the challenge to care for all who are hospitalized.  

Masks are available, if you do not have one.We will continue to keep our doors and windows open (when crowds might be larger); we keep our HVAC system running on high.  Air is filtered and ionized.    

It is always appropriate to dress a bit warmer on colder days.  We apologize that it can be a little cold sometimes, but the fresh air is our friend.  Thank you for helping us keep each other safe.     

- Fr. James Fox, Pastor

Confession at Good Shepherd
Procedure For Sacrament Of Confession
It is no longer necessary to sign up for the Sacrament of Confession at Good Shepherd.

Confessions are held on Saturday after the 4:00 p.m. mass (about 4:50 -5:00 p.m.) until all confessions are heard; and on the Second Tuesday during Eucharistic Adoration – 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Confessions are held in the Prayer Room to the left of the main entrance to the Body of the Church. Anyone going to confession has the choice of going anonymously or face to face. In the Church all persons are required to wear masks; anyone with any symptoms of a cold, or flue or virus are asked to remain home: coughing, runny nose; sneezing.
Financial Support
As Pastor, I continue to work diligently with the Pastoral Council and Finance Committee to ensure the financial health and stability of our parish and school. I clearly understand the economic hardships that everyone is experiencing as a result of this pandemic and all that might follow in the days to come. 

Gratefully, over the past several years, more and more Good Shepherd parishioners have moved to online giving through WeShare. This has helped to stabilize our offertory and will be particularly important as we navigate the next several weeks and/or months. For this reason, we are taking this moment to ask those of you who have not already done so to please consider moving your contributions to online giving if possible.  You may elect to make a one-time gift or make a regularly occurring contribution to the Parish offertory. If you need assistance with this, please call our Parish Office and speak to our Receptionist Sabrina Montoya at 303-261-1020. She can walk you through the steps to get signed up.
