Updates from Good Shepherd
Signing Up To Attend Mass No Longer Required
Effective the weekend of April 10-11, Good Shepherd Parish will no longer require mass attendees to sign up before the weekend. You are welcome to attend Church according to your best schedule.

 We will continue our current mass schedule:
 Saturday 4:00 pm Mass l 5:00 p.m. Confessions
 Sunday 7:00 am l 8:30 am l 10:00 am l 12:00 pm l 5:00 pm
Weekday masses will continue M-F at 7:30 am and Wednesdays at 12:00 noon.
 We will continue to ask all participants to wear masks at all times, until this guideline no longer applies in Denver County.
We will continue to practice keeping every other pew empty as much as possible.
Doors and windows will be kept open at all times and the HVAC system will continue to run on high to facilitate circulation.
 We will also continue our cleaning processes between masses.

 The work of reducing the spread of the COVID virus is not over and continues to require our diligence. We are grateful to all in the medical community who are working to facilitate vaccinations. We pray for a new day when we can greet each other and be present with each other without masks. Please know that you are always welcome at Good Shepherd to celebrate the gift of our Easter Faith.

Public Masses

We are continuing to hold masses with limited public attendance.
Families are welcome to sit together.
We are maintaining social distancing according to guidelines received from the Public Health Department.
This limited seating also allows our Maintenance Staff a chance to clean the Church between masses.
All persons attending mass are required at this time to wear a mask.

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.
