Church of the Nativity

Holy Day of Obligation

Wednesday, August 15 is a Holy Day of Obligation. It is the Feast of the Assumption.

In 1950, Pope Pius XII, in his encyclical Munificentissimus Deus, dogmatically defined the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In his teaching he states that "at the end of her earthly course, Mary was assumed into heavenly glory, body and soul." He also wrote that it was not new doctrine he was defining, but rather formalizing the revelation given us through the Apostles. 

Mass times are at:

6:45 a.m.
8:15 a.m.
6 p.m.

Current Events

Annual Football Raffle

The Knights of Columbus are currently holding their annual football raffle. Proceeds support religious formation for both seminarians and novices. In addition to the 13 winners for each of the 17 weekly drawings, this year two tickets, along with a parking pass, will be given to one lucky winner to attend every regular season football game at Arrowhead in Section 120, Row 20. See your friendly neighborhood Knight or buy tickets after Masses for $25 each or five for $100. Or contact Rod Carson at 913.638.4834 or swacarson@gmail.com.

We need lots of volunteers to make this weekend a success. Volunteer HERE.
