The Good Shepherd Parish is committed to provide a safe environment for our children and youth.
We are blessed that Fr. Chris serves Good Shepherd to ensure that children and youth who worship, study, or participate in activities sponsored by a parish can do so in the safest and most secure setting possible. If you are thinking about volunteering at Good Shepherd in one of our youth programs, we encourage you to come speak with Fr. Chris or the parish office. ALL VOLUNTEERS are required to completed the “Protecting God’s Children” workshops hosted by various Catholic churches and the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
