Welcome to Church of the Nativity

Our Mission...The Church of the Nativity is a living expression of the Roman Catholic Church which seeks to involve everyone in the life and mission of Jesus Christ by providing spiritual growth and faith formation for its parishioners and outreach to others.

Art of Collage

The Art of Collage is the title of the new exhibit by Ann Hatch. Ann was a member of Nativity but is now a member of St. Michael the Archangel. Ann’s unique pieces are inspired by her faith, her travel, and her life experiences. These one-of-a-kind pieces would make great gifts. The parish will receive 30% of sales. The collages will be on exhibit until Labor Day.

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.
