Here's what's happening at Nativity.

When St. Patrick and Lenten Fridays Collide

The Archbishop says we can eat meat tomorrow on St. Paddy's Day. But isn't that cheating? Not if you have a proper understanding of why we do this whole Lent thing, it isn't (read more on the blog)!

New Parishioner Welcome

Newly registered parishioner? Thinking about joining? Want to help welcome our newcomers? Join our priests and lay leadership for a New Parishioner Welcome Social this Sunday for refreshments and information on getting more involved at Nativity.

Saint Patrick

Tomorrow we celebrate the feast of Saint Patrick. Irish pirates kidnapped him from his native England and enslaved him in Ireland for six years. He escaped and returned home, received Holy Orders and returned to convert the Ireland to Christianity. St. Patrick, may we imitate you in your love for neighbors and enemies alike. Amen!

Afternoon of Reflection

Join us next Friday for an afternoon of seeking holiness and conversion, "Encountering Christ: Jesus and the Rich Young Man," presented by Deacon Dan Gannon.  

Sunday's Readings

In the Book of Exodus, the Israelites "grumbled" in the desert and Moses brought forth water miraculously from the rock. In Psalm 95, David reflects on the episode and tells the people, "Harden not your hearts." And in John's Gospel, Jesus offers "living water" to the woman at the well.
