Feeling Excluded at Your Parish? Join the Crowd

Sara Perla wrote a piece for OSV on the challenge of Christian community.

“A lot of you feel like you can barely make it to the parish for Mass. You barely make it out the door with shoes on all the kids. But at the same time, you expect everyone else to be better than you. To do the relational work that you feel yourself incapable of doing. To initiate conversation, reach out, offer empathy. To support you when you are sick and make meals for you when a new baby arrives. To be Christ for you. I’m here to say: You’ve gotta meet people halfway.”
