Welcome to our Lady of the Pines Catholic Community
A special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced," it's complicated", filthy rich or dirt poor. There is a place for you if you're over 60, but not grown up yet, or a teenager growing up too fast. Babies in the womb, toddlers who are wiggly, and children full of wonder and exploration, you are welcome here.
We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, Bronco and Sky Sox fans, starving artists, tree huggers, those in recovery and those who are still addicted. We welcome you if you sing like Pavarotti or can't carry a tune in a bucket. You are welcome here if you're just browsing, just woke up, just got bored at your current church, or visiting family in Black Forest, or just got out of jail.
We don't care if it's your first Sunday this Millennium or whether you've been to Church more times than the Pope. We welcome you if you're having problems or feeling overwhelmed or if you don't like organized religion. If you are looking for a fresh start, a fresh cup of hot coffee or a hug from a new friend, there is a place for you here. We welcome those wearing their Sunday best and those wearing their only clothes.
We are so glad to see those who are inked, pierced or both, those who could use a prayer right now and those who haven't been to Church since their Great Aunt's funeral. We welcome you if you're here because you made a navigation error and wound up here by mistake.
We welcome seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts and jaded cynics, the lost, the found .......
and especially YOU.
