Nativity Coins

We have a tradition at Nativity, the “Lighting the Way Award.” It is given to parishioners and others who join us in lighting the way to Christ in outstanding and significant ways. The award itself is a silver or bronze medal, with the Shield and Church of the Nativity of Our Lord 1917 on one side. The other side depicts the front of the Church and our motto “Lighting the Way.” Below is a list of those who have received a coin over the past several years:
