Welcome to St. Louise Church -
We wish to welcome all visitors, members and children today. We pray that worshiping with us will give you a sense of fellowship with Christ and with us as God's people, as well as comfort and strength for all your needs. If you have no church of your own, we invite you to make this your home church. But above all, we invite you to come to worship with us at any time.

|Now when the Pharisees gathered together to him, with some of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem, they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands defiled, that is, unwashed. (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, do not eat unless they wash their hands, observing the tradition of the elders; and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they purify themselves; and there are many other traditions which they observe, the washing of cups and pots and vessels of bronze.) And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, "Why do your disciples not live according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with hands defiled?" And he said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, `This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.' You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men."
And he called the people to him again, and said to them, "Hear me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a man which by going into him can defile him; but the things which come out of a man are what defile him." For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a man."

We love our Church, with all her limitations, and her riches too, she is our Mother.
For this reason we respect her, and while we do so,
we dream that she will never lose her beauty.
May she be the Church where it is good to live, where you can breathe,
and say what you think-a Church of Freedom.
A Church which listens before speaking
and welcomes instead of judging,
forgives without wishing to condemn, and announces rather than denounces.
A Church of mercy and of where the simplest of our brothers and sisters will understand
what the others are saying. Our Church will be where the wisest of leaders will know that
he doesn't know all, and where the people of God will be revealed in its entirety
-a Church of wisdom.
May our Church be where the Holy Spirit will be able to feel at home
because everything has not been foreseen, settled and decided in advance.
An open Church,
a Church where the audacity
to do something new
will be stronger than the habit of doing things
as they have always been done.
A Church where everyone can pray in their own language
and express themselves according to their culture, and live with their own history.
A Church of which people will not say how well they are organized,
but say how they love one another.
A Church of the city, a Church of suburbs, and of the streets.
Lift up your heads and look - the Lord is with us and with you.
-Adapted from a 1966 Pastoral letter of Bishop Guy Droubaix-SntDenis, France
