Celebrating a Century of Nativity
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Nativity Parish. Consequently, we hosted several centennial related activities including the February Centennial Mass and Brunch; several “100 Acts of Kindness” provided by Nativity students; an Ohio Arts Council Artist in Residence program that concluded with a Centennial themed play, “100 Years is a Mighty Long Way”; the June adults-only Centennial Celebration; the September Alumni Mass and Reception Celebrating 100 Years of Nativity; and finally, the November Centennial Circus. We thank all the Nativity families who volunteered and participated in our special events. We enjoyed celebrating our past and look forward with promise as we move into our second 100 years!
See below for information and photos from our special events.
