Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021


Good Shepherd, Menomonee Falls


Our Parish Roots:

Good Shepherd MosaicThe first parishioners of Good Shepherd came from the neighboring St. Mary’s Parish in 1957, breaking away to be served by Father Fran Eschweiler on June 2. To get to know and better serve his congregation, Fr. Eschweiler visited every household in his congregation on a regular basis, beginning a tradition of strong community and faith throughout the area.

The cornerstone for the combination church-school building was laid on May 25, 1958, when it was consecrated by Archbishop William Cousins. Good Shepherd became a gathering space for a growing Catholic community of more than 650 families, welcoming all Catholics from the surrounding region and further to join in celebrating Mass.
