We have recently moved and changed churches. This is the third church we have become members of since getting married. The first one we were welcomed with open arms, the 2nd one we were like strangers for 3 of the 4 years were members . Now, this one seems to have the same vibe. It seems as if the church has it veteran groups of volunteers and aren't to open to newbies.
I enjoy being Catholic, and a group of snobs is not going to push me from my faith.
Do any other Catholics see this in your church? Or did I just get two bad examples in a row? What about other churches, have you had a hard time fitting in to the group?

Most of the people who go to my church are older, and they have all been very welcoming. We've been going there for just over a year. People do practically have assigned seats during Mass, we all just sit in the same spot, I'm not really sure why, and there are some little groups here and there who seem to only talk to each other. For the most part though we've felt welcome and comfortable there from the start. I think you probably just got two bad examples in a row.
