Since we can only allow 90 people in the church, we are live-streaming the weekend masses so that those who cannot come into the church or choose not to can live-stream from a device in their car or at home. Click or tsp the button below.
For those who will be in their car, a Eucharistic Minister will be in front of the church giving out Holy Communion. They cannot come to your car.



Gov. Cuomo and Bishop Scharfenberger stated on June 6th that parishes may begin re-opening at 25% provided State and Diocesan guidelines are met.

ANNOUNCEMENT UPDATES
EMAIL We are asking all parishioners to send us your email address by sending an email to gsparishoffice@gmail.com. This will enable us to begin compiling a list so we can send updates via email in the future.
 
HOLY WATER The Holy Water fonts in church are emptied, however the Holy Water Container located in the main vestibule of the Church has Holy Water for you to take home. You must bring your own container to retrieve the Holy Water. The water is blessed on a regular basis.
 
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION No Sacraments will be celebrated until the Social Distancing requirements have been lifted and Bishop Scharfenberger gives us the green light to begin preparations. We have no way of knowing when this will be, but we'll keep everyone informed when any information is passed down to us. Please call the parish office if you have any questions regarding this matter. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncertain times together

FATHER DAN'S 25th ANNIVERSRY PARTY Due to Covid-19, New York State has extended its shutdown of schools, non-essential businesses and social gatherings through May 15, 2020. Unfortunately, this means the Celebration for Father Dan on May 8th is postponed. Currently, we anticipate the party to take place at the end of September. Once a date is finalized we will notify everyone accordingly. Please call the parish office if you have any questions.
 
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.
