You will be warmly welcomed in our churches and by all our parish activities.

If you would like to know more or discuss any aspect of the Catholic Faith, please contact me, Father Edmund Worthy.

Father Edmund's Desk

People often think that the Kingdom of Heaven is only for saints, and sinners should be ruthlessly weeded out. This is the 'exclusive' view - the Church is for the good people, the fully committed. But Jesus takes the opposite view, the 'inclusive' view - the Church is for all, the hot, the cold and the lukewarm, saints and sinners. When you think about it, a church that admitted only saints would make about as much sense as a hospital that admitted only well people, or a repair shop that accepted only things in good working order. We go to church, not because we are saints, but because we are sinners. And we prepare ourselves to celebrate the Sacred Mysteries every week as sinners who know that we are sinners.
