Nativity will reopen for public Mass this Sunday, June 21, 2020 at 10 am.

We appreciate your patience as we completed the restroom upgrades in church. The new Men’s Room and ADA Family Bathroom were delayed due to issues getting materials related to COVID-19 but are now complete and are a much-needed enhancement to our church.

Before you attend Mass please note that Mass will be limited to 100 people on Sunday. You do not need a reservation, everyone who attends Mass must wear a mask and follow the guidelines listed below.

We will continue to post Mass online on Sundays as we have the last few weeks for those who can not attend.

If you have any questions please contact Rudy Gruenke, Director of Systems and Special Projects at rudy.gruenke@nativity-cincinnati.org or (513) 531-0209.
