Open For Prayer

You are welcome to come in to pray in the Lady Chapel when the Church is open.

Everyone is Welcome

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, broken hearted, or in need of a safe place.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like the Rector 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’ve never been to church before – you might get a pleasant surprise.

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, balmy Rugby League or even Polo playing 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 partying or on the gee gees, 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, can’t add-up, 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! (With thanks to Our Lady of Lourdes Community USA for the idea)
