Although born in Detroit, Fr. Gordon Reigle grew up in Jackson, Michigan, and graduated from Lumen Christi High School. After studying engineering at Western Michigan University, he worked six years for EDS (Electronic Data Systems) before entering seminary and studying at the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. Ordained for the Diocese of Lansing in 2005—the Year of the Eucharist—Fr. Gordon has served at St. Andrew the Apostle Church in Saline, Lansing Catholic High School and Bethany House, the youth retreat house at St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt. He is currently assigned as pastor of St. Robert Bellarmine Parish, Flushing, and Good Shepherd Parish, Montrose.
It is truly an honor to serve the parishes of St. Robert Bellarmine and Good Shepherd. Thank you to all who have been praying for me as I make this transition from high school to parish ministry. Change is never easy, and I ask your patience as I learn the ropes and your names as well. This has been a difficult year in many respects, especially with the passing of Fr. Paul and the reducing of the Mass schedule to accommodate one priest serving two parishes. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your patience and willingness to work with our ever changing situation. Please continue to pray for me as I settle into this new role. And please do introduce yourselves after Mass and forgive me if it takes a couple of times. I have a lot of new names to learn. May God bless and keep you all!
