O God, make the door of this church wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship, narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife. Make its threshold smooth enough to be a no stumbling-block to children, nor to straying feet, but rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter’s power. God, make the door of this church the gateway to your eternal kingdom. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The mission of the Welcome Ministry is to extend a welcoming spirit of community and offer a deeper spiritual connection to the parish. The ministry seeks to enhance the faith community, strengthen attendance at Mass and provide avenues for involvement in parish ministries, organizations and activities for the entire family.
