Lent

 

Lent is an annual season of preparation for Easter. The faithful and those new to faith are encouraged to greater attention to the word of God as they grow more deeply as disciples of Christ. Renewed efforts in prayer, penance, and giving nobly characterize this season. At Nativity there are a wealth of opportunities to observe Lent and we invite you and your family to join us.

Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting and abstinence (from meat). When fasting, only one full meal is taken as well as two smaller ones. Fridays during Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Additionally the Church encourages the faithful to take up a daily penance, such as abstinence from some food or drink.

 

Giving and Tithing

Parish Giving: When you invest in what matters to God, you strengthen your relationship with Him. Our giving makes it possible for people to hear the Good News of God’s love for them. It also helps us provide, through our Ministry partners, critical care to the poor and those in need. To get started, go to our give website and select the giving option that works best for you.

 

Archbishop’s Annual Appeal

Together in Mission we can make a difference in the lives of many. Join us this Lent in support the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal and make a positive impact on our city and community.

 

Lenten Message Series

“No Offense”

Jesus said, “Blessed is he who takes no offense.” But we do, often over little things and sometimes over everything. Of course it slows us down and can wear us out, but it can be a stumbling block in our professional life and deeply damaging in our relationships. The Bible actually has quite a lot to teach us on the topic as we’ll see in our new series for the season of Lent. If you’ve been thinking of inviting an unchurched friend to church, this series will be the perfect opportunity.
Join us at all weekend Masses, February 17 – March 18.
To catch up on past messages check out our Messages page.
