GOOD SHEPHERD CHURCH 5230 Clark Ave, Ste 7, Lakewood, CA 90712 (562) 920-2212


In seeking the ministry of an independent priest, one must be selective. An individual who claims to be a “Catholic priest” may be defining the term more broadly than other people do. Others replace the word “independent” with “retired” in hopes that they can avoid their distinctiveness from the Roman Catholic Church altogether. Many have never even attended a seminary.

We are proud to present our Independent Catholic priests to you along with their educational background and pastoral experience. Whether you are thinking of making Good Shepherd your parish or inquiring about how one of our priests can serve you on a special occasion, I’m sure you’ll find their services to you a blessing in every way.

The priests of Good Shepherd:

Bishop Brian P. Delvaux

Father Jack Kearney
Father Don Grasha
Deacon Gary Alley
