Welcome to Nativity!

We welcome guests and visitors and all those seeking a faith community. Whoever you are and wherever you’ve come from you are welcome here. From its founding in 1917 to today, Nativity is a great place to be, lighting the way to the future through faith, service, and prayer. The heart of our community is the Eucharist. Through the Eucharist, we are invited to a personal relationship with Jesus. To know Jesus is to love our neighbor. You will find Nativity to be a faith-filled, vibrant community; a people of varied backgrounds, ethnicity, and economic resource. All are welcome to join in the prayer and fellowship, to belong here now and for generations to come.

Beacons of Light

REVIEW AND COMMENT ON DRAFT “FAMILIES OF PARISHES”
Make sure your voice is heard! Beacons of Light, the archdiocese-wide pastoral planning process currently underway, will result in all parishes being grouped into “Families” under the leadership of one pastor. A draft of this plan will be shared for public comment October 1-20 at www.BeaconsAOC.org. Do not miss this opportunity to provide your input to this important initiative which will shape the future of our Archdiocese.

We are currently working on a brand new website which will launch in October. As we put the finishing touches on the new site we will not be making updates to the current website. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we finish up the new website.

Live Stream Mass

We are excited to announce that we are now able to live stream Masses at Nativity Church!

Those who are ill, have significant health risk factors or care for someone who is compromised or ill, are not obligated to attend Mass in-person on Sunday and Holy Days as well as those who have significant fear or anxiety of contracting the coronavirus in a large group of people. These should observe the Lord’s Day and are encouraged to spend time in prayer on Sunday, meditating on the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection. An appropriate way to do this is through viewing a broadcast of Sunday Mass.

NOTE: Mass that is broadcast through various media, including livestream, is not intended as an alternative nor does it fulfill the obligation for persons who are able to gather for a Sunday celebration and other Holy Days. They are intended for the sick, homebound, imprisoned etc. who are unable to attend Mass in person.
