Welcome. Be at home.
Fr. Patrick and the Pastoral Team pledge:
We will welcome you regardless of your situation in life, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, whatever the state of your marriage, including those in a mixed faith marriage, and those sharing a home without marriage. We will welcome you whether you are conservative or liberal, old or young, rich or poor, gay, lesbian, transgender or straight. You belong here whatever your race, color and cultural background, immigrant or native born, whether you are fully or differently abled, healthy or sick. We will welcome you whether you are struggling with your faith or firm in your commitment. We will maintain an open door and an open heart to you and offer you a place to share in the life of the parish and grow in relationship with Jesus Christ.
