Our History

Good Shepherd Catholic Parish serves a diverse region of California’s great central valley. Visalia is home to a rich blend of cultures and ethnicities. Our congregation enjoys the traditions and values of Hispanic, Asian, African American, and many others. Sixty percent of Visalia residents are Catholic and each month, thousands stream in and out of our churches, school, and the Bethlehem Center.

Our Mission:

To unite members to know, love, and serve God through prayer, spiritual growth, acts of Charity and stewardship. With the loving example and guidance of Mary, the Mother of God, we share our gifts, talents and treasures to assist with the care, maintenance, and procurement of liturgical and other pastoral needs of the parishes of Good Shepherd Catholic Parish.
