Yet, I can't say I have felt less welcome in the church being single. I would say the church is probably more welcoming and understanding of singles than society as a whole.
I wonder what others think....
Reading this make me feel blessed that Im really doing well in my single life as I serve in my community and our parish priest supported us too.
The irony is while you guys wanted to be in service in the church, while here they have their own personal interest like schooling (they are mostly highschooler or college and they feel more compelled to finish first before joining) or working at night . Only those who feel the calling to serve comes. It's been the struggle over the year of how to increase the members. I just had my one on one dialogue last night with my leader on how to sustain the growth of remaining members so I think we'll pray more for those participants to attend in the future.
And no, we are not 2nd class citizens. We are just doing our best, our time, talent and treasure to fulfilll our remaining single life. If you are happy being a single person right now, you'll be happy being married too.
