Shepherd's Gate is a small annual grant program that supports nonprofit organizations that reflect our parish mission to serve people in need, to do justice where inequity exists, to stand for human dignity, and to promote peace. Income from Good Shepherd's annual International Festival, held on Labor Day, funds the Program. For information on applying for a Shepherd's Gate Grant, see below or contact us at grant@gs-cc.org.
