Spiritual Adoption Program: Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby.  As an expression of that love, Catholic Church of the Nativity announces an adoption program for young and old alike.

 

The late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen encouraged the spiritual adoption of an unborn child. This is done by praying that one particular but unknown child’s life be spared abortion and be allowed to continue to live. Not all newly conceived babies are allowed to be born. In fact, approximately 3,000 babies in the United States lose their lives to abortion each day.  

 

You may “adopt” a child individually or as a family by signing up during the weekends of January 22/23 and 29/30.  You will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby giving the baby the humanity he or she deserves.  You will be asked to pray for your unborn child and for all unborn children, for the power of prayer is great.

 

You will receive monthly reports through the parish bulletin describing your baby’s development and your child will be born in September culminating with a parish-wide baby shower. During your earthly life this spiritually adopted child of yours is known only to God, but in the world to come it is hoped that you will meet the child whose life was spared by your prayers and spend eternal happiness with them.-Respect Life Ministry

We are excited to announce that the nursery is OPEN during the 8:30 and 11am Masses! The nursery will be available for children ages 3 and under. Parents, if your child will require diapers, wipes, or a snack (peanut free), please bring it labeled in a diaper bag. An initial registration form is required and is available in the file at the top of the staircase. 
We are still in need of a few substitute nursery volunteers so if you would like to help volunteer occasionally,

This is a group for parents with young children to enjoy fellowship while their children  play. 

Our group meets every other Thursday evening from 6-7 pm in the church nursery (or parking lot to accommodate social distancing).
