Picture this: A Catholic church where divorced and remarried Catholics are welcomed with open arms to receive the Eucharist; where the priest, who is himself married, empathizes with parishoners in their child-rearing challenges as he brings the message of Scripture to life in his weekly homily; that promotes an adult spirituality with particular respect to individual conscience; that celebrates marriages of interfaith couples and welcomes all Christians who believe in the real presence to receive Holy Communion.
Is this concept of Catholicism ahead of its time?
Good Shepherd Church is a parish of the Diocese of American Catholic Communities under the leadership of Bishop Brian Delvaux. We celebrate a characteristically Catholic tradition, practicing the faith of contemporary Roman Catholicism with only a few doctrinal and disiciplinary exceptions. Details of the differences can be found on this website.
