In this context, 'welcome' is an adjective. It can also be used as a noun, verb, or an exclamation. The only time it would have the '-ed' ending is when it is a verb.

 

 You are most welcome.

 

Noun:

We received a warm welcome.

 

Verb:

We welcomed the guests into the house.

 

Exclamation:

Welcome! Please come in.
