Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Toledo

Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Toledo

Good Shepherd Church is a church in Toledo and a member of Emmaus Cluster with St. Louis and St. Thomas Aquinas churches. In 1872 many members of one church of Toledo lived on the east side of the river, while the church was on the west side. For those living on the east side, it was a problem to reach the church, so they launched a petition to Bishop Gilmour in order to obtain permission to organize a separate church. Permission was granted and the Good Shepherd Church was organized. The parish built the church as well as a school with a rectory. Good Shepherd Church is one of the most significant and representative religious buildings in the city. It has an original facade with a very unusual arrangement of its front Rose Window. The church welcomes everyone who wants to be closer to God. Opening hours are Sunday: 9 a.m.; Thursday: 7 p.m.
