You are welcome!  Reflecting the welcome that Jesus Christ offers to all, Gesu Parish welcomes every person to seek full participation in our parish community and within the Body of Christ.  We believe that all are worthy of respect and love, because all are created in the image of God.  Our welcome is not limited by a person's age, sex, race, cultural background, physical or mental health or ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, social or economic situation, marital status, or faith background.  We do not seek to erase our differences.  Rather, we lovingly embrace the rich and unique dimensions within each of us, as we strive to grow together in holiness.  This is the wholeness of life.  Moving with as much understanding, compassion, and humility as we can, we journey together in a safe, positive and nurturing environment, beyond tolerance, toward mutual respect, in grateful celebration of God's creation.
