Facility Use

GOOD SHEPHERD CATHOLIC CHURCH has a wonderful facility in Shawnee, Kansas. Thanks to God and to the wonderful parishioners who have supported the growth and development of our facilities, we are able to host meetings, weddings, receptions, anniversary parties and athletic events.

Below is a diagram of our facilities at Good Shepherd (or a printable version here: default Facilities Site Plan (354 KB) ). Whether you plan on joining us for one of our Sunday liturgies, a special event or will be here for a meeting during the week, this diagram will help orient you to our various meeting spaces. If you need further information about our facilities, don't hesitate to contact the church office at 913-631-7116.

From time to time we are asked how we determine how church facilities may be used for family or personal events. Following is a brief highlight of the parish facilities use policy.

Parish facilities are available for use in the following priority sequence:
● Parish sponsored events
● School sponsored activities
● Knights of Columbus/Boy Scouts
● CYO athletic events-including practices
● Other activities at the discretion of the staff and pastor

No activities or events may be held during weekend or holy day masses. Non-parish use of Good Shepherd facilities requires the completion of a reservation request form ( default Community Center Rental Form (145 KB) , default Social Hall Rental Form (129 KB) ) an equipment check list and proof of or purchase of insurance for the event. The Archdiocese, the owner of our facilities, requires the parish be added to an existing insurance certificate or the lessee must purchase special events coverage from Catholic Mutual, our insurance provider.

Inquiries regarding facilities use should be directed to Susan Havranek or Steve Lemons in the church office 631-7116.
