We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor,
yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail
or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can’t carry a note in a bucket.
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re
more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are
growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers,
vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you
if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion,”
we’ve been there too.
If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those
who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted
to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer
right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.
We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!

encounter with our eternal advocate, Jesus Christ!

there. As always, Trish will be on hand to watch any little ones who aren't going
