Welcome to Church of the Good Shepherd

SUNDAY MASS is below

November Greetings! 

As the Holiday months approach, we long to be together in Christian community. However, according to the information and Covid19 levels from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health it does not appear that our Churches in LA County will be able to open for indoor services anytime soon.

With that in mind, I have decided to buy a canopy and begin outdoor Masses in the courtyard behind the church.  Seating is very limited, so it is first come, first served.  Signs will be posted; everyone will enter the worship space from the alley that is adjacent to our parking lot & parish office.  Face coverings will be required.  For those that are still not comfortable attending mass in person, we of course continue our Sunday Masses below.

The schedule until further notice will be the following:

  • Weekday Masses beginning ~ Monday, November 16th at 12:05pm 
  • Vigil Masses starting on Saturday, November 21st at 4pm
  • Sunday Masses at 10am, 12pm and 4pm 
  • Confessions will be available Saturdays from 2pm-3pm
  • Thanksgiving Day ~ Mass at 10am 

In addition to offering public worship, we also want to extend an invitation for everyone to participate in our FeedMyPoor Ministry. We need volunteers daily either to make sandwiches from 11am-1pm or deliver the food to the homeless from 1pm-3pm.  Please call Penny at the parish office to join us!

Finally, I wanted to announce that we have consolidated our Martha’s Kitchen Ministry with FeedMyPoor so our efforts to feed the homeless can be better served and stronger! Your prayers, donations and time devoted to our efforts for the homeless comes with great gratitude!

Covid19 has shaken our world into something we have never seen before.  As we continue to navigate the ever changing and fluid waters of this global pandemic, Fr. O’Ryan and myself lift everyone up in prayer during our daily Masses. We know that God has not abandoned us, and He will provide the love, grace and strength during this difficult time.

God Bless you always and IN all ways!  
Fr. Ed Benioff, Pastor
