Our Lady of Sorrows and Saint Philip Benizi, Fordingbridge

WELCOME – you are loved!

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rake or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or croak like a frog. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woke up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Pope or Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s christening. We extend a special welcome to those who are over sixty but not grown up yet and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome you if you are having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like organised religion – we’ve been there too! If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell or because your grandma is in Fordingbridge or Ringwood and wanted to go to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as a kid or got lost in the local one way system and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts…………and you!
