Welcome Statement

We, the members and friends of Shepherd’s Heart proclaim the message that the Grace of our Lord is infinitely inclusive and that everyone is welcome through our doors. We believe that Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness in a world of alienation and brokenness. 

As disciples of Jesus, seeking justice and reconciliation among all peoples, the people of Shepherd’s Heart welcome all into the fullness of God’s love and grace. God welcomes all and so we also welcome all regardless of race or culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or relationship status. We welcome all without regard to addictions, physical or mental health, imprisonment, socio-economic circumstances, or anything that too often divides us. Our unity is in Christ.

We recognize that each person is a unique creation of God and, through Grace, is called a child of God. 

All are welcome at Shepherd’s Heart and are embraced by God’s love.

All are welcome to participate in our programs including tutoring, faith formation, community service activities, to join us for Mass and the Daily Offices, to hear the Good News, to receive the sacraments, and to share in fellowship.   All members, friends, and active participants of Shepherd’s Heart pledge to exercise our faith in Jesus the Christ, treasuring one another’s similarities while embracing our God-given differences. We pledge to ourselves and to all others that we will strive to live as a reconciling people, in our life together and in our outreach to the world.
