As St Paul said there is no male or female, no Jew or Gentile, no slave or free, should we add to Paul's statement no Catholic or Protestant, we are all in Christ, but the bigger question that needs to be asked is what does it mean to be in Christ, if being in Christ is not about doctrinal accuracy or how you understand the trinity for instance, then what does it mean to be in Christ? I think we need to look deeper at the incarnation itself and see that the incarnation isnt about that Christ was male but about Christ being the true Adam or rather the true human being or human representative, so to be in Christ (i.e participation) means to become truly human (made in God's image) which is how you relate to God and your neighbour, so being in Christ is not about right belief its about right relations as it were, an that means everyone is welcome simply because anyone can become more human and be in Christ.
