At the Cathedral we believe that to grow deeper in a relationship with the Triune God is a journey of a lifetime. With that in mind, we've been working hard to prepare for an amazing year of spiritual growth for your whole family! We have something for everyone and we want to create a place where all members of our community feel welcome and know that they are invited into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church!

GOF is a weekly gathering where people of all ages: children, teens, and adults, are invited to learn and grow in the richness of our Catholic Faith. We share dinner together in fellowship, providing a great opportunity to meet new people and grow together as a community and encounter Christ. We seek to sow God's seed of truth, beauty, and goodness into each and every heart, so that good fruit can be harvested and joyfully shared with others throughout all of our lives.


We meet Wednesday evenings, September through May.

  • 5:00 pm - Dinner
    5:35 pm - Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
    5:45 pm - Classes Begin
    7:15 pm - Classes End
    7:30 pm - Mass


What if I have food allergies? What if my kids have food allergies?

Please let us know your dietary needs on the registration form. 

We are happy to accommodate your needs each week. 


What is the cost for Generations of Faith?

Due to the generous support of our parish family’s financial commitment to stewardship, we are able to offer Generations of Faith free of charge.

If a family would like to make a donation, however, to offset the costs of materials and food, your support would be warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated. (Suggested optional donation $50-$75/family for the year)
