Thank you for visiting us...
Welcome to Good Shepherd’s home on the Internet. We thank you for making a “virtual visit”, here on our Website. We are situated in the northwest corner of Genesee County in a small town called Montrose. The faithful people in Montrose began their work to build a church back in 1979. Their efforts bloomed on May 4, 1981, when the parish family celebrated their first Liturgy together in their new church. Our current 210-household parish is known as a small, friendly, hospitable and life-giving community. I invite you to return to our site as often as you would like and remember that you will find the latest news and information about our parish family right here. May the Good Shepherd bless you and your family and your spiritual journey as Catholics, “virtual Catholics”, that is! With Faithful Gratitude, Fr. Gordon Reigle, Pastor.

First Friday & First Saturday Devotions: As our modern culture is in need of repentance for its many sins against life, the First Friday and First Saturday devotions are perfectly suited for calling down God’s Mercy on a broken world. Read more about them here.
About the 12 Promises of Devotion to the Sacred Heart: (12.) I promise thee, in the excessive mercy of My Heart, that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
