The initiative calls for all of us to be the Church Jesus wanted us to be– that is to Welcome everyone! Strangers are no longer strangers when they come home to church. With Christmas approaching quickly, “Welcome to the Inn” reminds us that for the birth of baby Jesus, there was no room at the Inn. Mary and Joseph would have been quite worried with the birth of their child imminent. Those who come to our church should never feel worried about coming. Acting on behalf of Jesus, we have a job to do! Let us be welcoming to all. At our recent Parish Meeting Night and Thanksgiving Service on Wednesday night, we discussed the model and the actions our parish will take to implement this theme throughout Advent. Stayed tuned on how you will play your part this Advent!!
