We have experienced the goodness of being a part of a church community and want to invite others to share that with us. It's okay if our invitation is declined, but it never hurts to ask.

We challenge each parish to take a closer look at their community and to intentionally grow in becoming more welcoming. To help foster an attitude of invitation, the diocese launched Seasons of Invitation.

Please pray about someone you know and invite him/her to church. You can then invite people back, perhaps especially on occasions that lend themselves to invitation, such as Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas and Easter services.
