I Want to Go to Mass...
I haven't been to Mass in a long time...
Welcome back! We are so glad you are here and have some good news! Not much has changed! But you have! The Mass is where we come to worship God and as a kid that can be kind of boring, just as other adult things were boring back then. Now that you are older, the weight of the Mass may be just right for you!
I've done some stuff since I last went to Mass...
We've gotten this idea in our heads that the Church is for perfect people. The fact is all Saints were once sinners. God doesn't just love the 'good' version of us, He loves us! But the fact of the matter is this: if you have messed up, there is no better place for you to be than at Mass. God wants you. We want you. Believe us, you are wanted.
I've never been to a Catholic Mass, would it be weird to come check it out?
Not at all! New people come all the time and we are quick to welcome them into our family! If you've never been to a Catholic Mass the only way to check it out is to show up! We'd love to see you there!
What if I don't know anyone?
You belong here. Even if you don't know anyone, or know the prayers or order...you belong here. And we cannot wait to have you join us!
Life is super busy, but I want to be more prepared for Mass, what should I do?
Great question! First read ahead! You can find all the Mass reading in advance with a quick Google search! Second, go to confession at least once a month, learning to open yourself to God's love and mercy is a game changer! Lastly, consider getting involved in a Bible study! You can learn more about that here!
I love to serve! Can I help out at Mass?
Of course! Check out our various ministries and groups that help make our parish feel like a second home!
