You Are Welcome to Worship

[Wherever you are if read this in the morning you are welcome to join Sacred Heart in Bluefield (9:00am) or Princeton (11:00am)for Mass which includes both a Liturgy of the Word and a Liturgy of the Eucharist. Remember the words of Jesus, “Wherever two or three gather in my name, there am I in their midst.” Here follows an invitation to worship.]

If you are spiritually weary and in search of rest,
if you are mourning and you long for comfort,
if you are struggling and you desire victory,
if you recognize that you are a sinner and need a Savior,
God welcomes you here in the name of Christ.
To the stranger in need of fellowship,
to those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
and to whoever will come,
this congregation opens wide its doors
and welcomes all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
