Describing our parish demographics, ethnic communities, etc
“Community has little to do with mutual compatibility. Similarities in educational background, psychological makeup, or social status can bring us together, but they can never be the basis for community.
Community is grounded in God, who calls us together, and not in the attractiveness of people to each other. . . .
The mystery of community is precisely that it embraces all people, whatever their individual differences may be, and allows them to live together as brothers and sisters of Christ and sons and daughters of his heavenly Father.”
– Henri Nouwen
