The following information came directly from the website of Good Shepherd Catholic Church.

“The parish was founded December 12, 1923, in a small nine-year-old suburban community that would, before long, be synonymous worldwide with the rich and famous.

In 1923 though, the Church of the Good Shepherd was merely one of 18 parishes founded that year in the newly established Diocese of Los Angeles San Diego: the busiest such year in diocesan history.”

Good Shepherd Parish now also has Good Shepherd Catholic School for K-8th grade.
