Good Shepherd Balmoral
"I have come that you may have life and have it to the full"
Kia Ora koutou katoa.
Welcome to Good Shepherd Catholic Church here in Balmoral Auckland.
Lying in the valleys between three volcanic cones of the Auckland isthmus ~ Mangawhau Mt Eden, Owairaka Mt Albert, Te status-a-Riokiuta Three Kings, Good Shepherd Parish is centrally located off Dominion Road at the end of Telford Avenue.
The Good Shepherd campus includes the Parish Church, Good Shepherd School, GIFT (Grow in Faith Together a ministry for adults with an intellectual disability). Good Shepherd is also home to the Auckland Catholic Filipino Chaplaincy.
Over a thousand people gather over our three Sunday Masses and we see ourselves as a vibrant, ethnically diverse community of faith. The Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our spiritual lives as Catholics. Come join us!
In John 10:10 Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd said “I have come that you may have life and have it to the full”
With this in mind we entrust ourselves as a community to his guidance and grace. May God bless all our endeavours in His name.

Rejoice - Auckland Catholic Festival
Save the date : Saturday 16 October
Our Bishops, Patrick and Michael invite us to celebrate as a diocese as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, to gather together again to be inspired as Catholics to love and serve as missionary disciples in parishes, schools and communities.
The Festival will provide an opportunity to come together to rejoice in the Lord - the source of our Joy.
More details will follow as we get nearer the date!
News and Events
“On a cold wintry Sunday night on 26 June we hosted the first of our “Where to from here?” parish discernment meetings. It was a good start. Our 4 July newsletter carried a report summary of that meeting – there are copies available in the foyer for those who missed that issue. We would love to see you for the next meeting on Sunday 15 August from 3-5pm.”
