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.

Welcoming each other back to Mass!

As more and more faithful return to Mass, TOGETHER will assist in encouraging parishioners to return to in-person Mass and help them understand the importance of Mass, the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the value of Sunday, our obligation to worship and the advantage of being together physically rather than virtually.

Nativity FallFest

Join us September 3rd and 4th from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm for Nativity FallFest!

Beacons of Light

Beacons of Light is a multiyear process of pastoral planning for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Rooted in prayer, groupings of parishes will come together as one faith community. These new “Families of Parishes” will be stronger together, focused more on mission than on maintenance. In the Families of Parishes, we will grow closer to God, follow Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit and radiate Christ in our lives.

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.

INTRODUCING BEACONS OF LIGHT: PASTORAL PLANNING FOR OUR THIRD CENTURY

Archbishop Schnurr has announced the next phase of pastoral planning, called “Beacons of Light.” The process is designed to foster vital parish life throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, leading all to radiate Christ in our homes, places of work, schools, parishes and the wider world. Sign up online to receive the free Beacons of Light e-newsletter which will provide monthly prayers, reflections and planning process updates beginning mid-January 2021.

Parish Calendar

We are currently transitioning to a new and improved centralized calendar system for Nativity. This new system will make it easier for users to schedule events on campus. We will provide more information on how to subscribe to the new calendars and schedule events soon. Due to the transition and some updates needed to the website the calendar has been temporarily removed. You can view the full calendar on this page. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work on these updates.
