Welcome to St. Mary's Nativity Church

PATRIOTIC ROSARY

We invite you pray the rosary using the Patriotic Rosary adaptation. We are called to remember our nation, states and our community; we also remember all the medical community and first responders as we pray for them and their families. What is most important is that we pray this prayer from our hearts.

STAY CONNECTED

Date:  August 03, 2020

To: St. Mary’s Registered Parishioners

My dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

We want to stay connected with you through the telephone and the internet.  As mentioned through St. Mary’s bulletin, website and Facebook, I have asked our church leadership to make a 2nd phone call to our registered parishioners in this time of “social distancing.”  

You are important to God and to us and we want to know how you are doing.  Again the purpose is that we want to provide a personal connection for you as well as to assist you with any possible physical and/or spiritual needs.  If there is a need, the leadership will contact me.  

 If you did not receive a 1st phone call, chances are we did not have your current number.  We will be making phone calls in the next couple of weeks.  Our church leadership will clearly identify themselves to you and if they don’t, be aware that it may be a scammer and hang-up.     

If you do not receive a phone call by the end of August 2020, please let us know by calling or email the church.  God bless +

I want to thank our St. Mary’s parish leadership; it is our hope and our dream that these phone calls will help us stay connected during this pandemic.

In short, we want to offer you a message of hope and LOVE.

Humbly yours,

Fr. Clyde
