Two Worship Sites
Welcome to our faith community. Whether you are new to the area, looking for a Catholic church, seeking to return to a Catholic church, or investigating what it means to be Catholic, we are glad you are here. We are a family Parish of two worship sites located in Pendleton and Clarence Center, New York. We are a Christ-centered Roman Catholic faith community that is dedicated to bringing God’s presence to others through prayer, service and friendship. For address and map direction to both worship sites, Click Here.
A Word From Our Pastor
It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Pastor of this merged parish that began in 2009. We profess a strong belief in the Word of God, the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and a loyalty to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. We are a parish that strives to live out the corporeal and spiritual works of mercy.

Our roots of faith are solid and span many generations, over 160 years! The former Good Shepherd Church was founded by Saint John Neumann in 1847 and the former St. Augustine Church was founded on June 24, 1949 by Bishop John F. O'Hara. Our fore-fathers, priests, sisters and lay leaders collaboratively shared their resources of education and spirituality to build up this community of faith. Built on solid ground this merged community draws from past history and trusting in God’s providence reaches toward new beginnings. Our story is one of faith and trust in God. Together we will walk this journey and pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide and direct us! Physically and literally Saint John Neumann and venerable Nelson Baker walked the grounds that we walk on today! Their legacy is our legacy of faith! We welcome you to journey with us as a family of faith within the walls of the Universal Roman Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago!

Our website provides only a glimpse of who we are. Please join us for prayer at Mass and consider becoming part of our parish family.
