On Monday, October 1st at 6:00pm, Nativity will be reciting a Living Rosary for Life in our parking lot between the church and gym. We re hoping for 60 peopel, young and old, who will each represent a bead on the Rosary.
This is open to everyone! Spread the word, gather your families and join this beautiful and powerful prayer. Let the community see our faith!
Mark your calendars and put aside just a half hour to pray for the respect of life from conception to natural death.
POSTED 9/10/18:Nativity’s Health Ministry and co-sponsor Wegman’s Pharmacy will present Vaccination Sunday on September 30 from 8am – 1:15pm. This event will take place in the gymnasium entryway. (Look for the Monsignor Beasley Center sign)
Flu vaccines will be available for ages 2 and up and the new shingles vaccine will be available depending on the market shortage.
Join Ms. Mary at our 9am Mass every Sunday for Children’s Liturgy of the Word. The children will experience the same readings and rituals as the larger parish assembly, but use a special children’s lectionary with a homily experience geared for their age group.

The first of the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy – Feed the hungry.
Our parishioner, Dan Barone, was instrumental in setting up Nativity’s monthly meal service at the Lackawana Food Pantry. He is also a fantastic chef and acted as head cook for the monthly meals, providing healthy meals for those in need.
As Dan’s commitments have recently changed, we are now in need of a cook!
If you have any interest in helping or ideas on how our parish can continue this important ministry to the poor, please contact Melissa at 662-9339 ext 145 or email@example.com
Thank you to Dan Barone for many years of cooking for and feeding the community at the Lackawana Food Pantry.
