To best explain, I borrow a line from “Amazing Grace”: “Once I was lost but now I’m found.” There was a time I felt I could no longer be a part of the traditional Catholic Church. I quit going. As time went by, I felt a void that continued to grow. I saw an ad in a local newspaper that said something about “feeling disconnected and looking for something better,” so I tried JOS. At first I was unsure, but now I know this is a place of love, a place where Jesus is always the main focus whether in the greetings as you enter, the message expressed during Mass, or the bond we all feel and share during fellowship.
Too much doctrine and not enough Spirit can lead one on a very discouraging journey. The message gets lost. There is no nourishment! When I walked through the doors here some years ago, I knew I had found my “nourishing place.” The Spirit is alive here—loving, living, breathing, forgiving, accepting, healing. You can feel it as soon as you’re welcomed inside. All are welcome at the Table here—no matter where you are on your faith journey or your life journey. No exclusions! I never consider it an “obligation” to attend Mass at JOS; I consider it a joy. I can question, I can doubt, I can praise and worship God in an atmosphere that is not immersed in doctrine, rules or guilt; and I am surrounded by people who share similar ideals, who are more concerned about living the Gospel than about simply reciting prayers or “fulfilling their Sunday obligation.”
