Looking for Volunteers…

07 Aug 2019 | 0 comments

POSTED: 8/7/19

Can you help us build the Kingdom of God here on earth?

Nativity is currently looking for volunteers in the following ways:

-Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (Eucharistic Ministers) to bring communion to folks at Orchard Heights.  We are looking for people who are available on Sunday mornings on a substitute basis.  Our wonderful volunteer who does it regularly needs a back up from time to time.  Please call Melissa if you can help! 662-9339 x 145

-Faith Formation is looking for catechists, aides, and extra volunteers.  The willingness to share your faith and time will have an eternal impact on so many families!  Please call Mary at 662-2169 if you are interested.

St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Outreach Needs

11 May 2018 | 0 comments

We are in the process of rotating the winter and summer clothing and taking inventory of our needs.

In the meantime, the following items are in VERY LOW SUPPLY.
1. diapers
2. baby wash and lotion
3. wipes
4.bottles
5. bibs
6. onesies
7. receiving blankets
8. bins, clean used or new (about 18 gallon size).

I know they are not as exciting to shop for compared to sweet
little outfits, but these basic items are so important for the care
of the babies!

Items can be placed in the wooden bins at the foot of the crucifix
in the narthex of the church. Also, items such as strollers, pack
n plays, walkers, etc are always welcome. We ask that you
please clean and prepare the items for immediate use as there are
no laundry facilities or space to clean items at the center.
If you have any questions, please call Melissa at 662-9339 ext 145 or email mpotzler@nativityschool.net.
