New or gently-used items are accepted. Due to very strict Covid-19 guidelines, used items must be FRESHLY laundered, free of stains, odors and pet hair, and sealed in plastic bags or totes. Other items (high chairs, strollers, pack-n-play, etc.) must be FRESHLY cleaned, all necessary parts included, must meet current safety standards, and not be under any recall. Donations can be left in the church narthex or the business office. Thank you!

“Haiti Gift Card Fundraiser

This year, we will again raise funds for our twin parish of St. Michael the Archangel in Coq Chante, Haiti by selling gift cards. The pandemic has greatly affected our lives including our Parish activities. This includes our Haiti fund raising activities for the various projects at our twin parish. The Nativity Haiti Fund will be depleted by the end of 2020. Without sufficient funding, the continued operation of the medical clinic at our twin parish is in jeopardy. For this reason gift cards only for the medical clinic will be offered this year. The medical clinic provides the only available healthcare in Coq Chante and its continued operation is critical for the health of the people. The suggested donation per Healthcare gift card is $50 but any donation amount per card is most welcome. There are blank cards that can be used for any occasion. Please consider stocking up on blank cards to use throughout the year for birthdays, graduations and many other occasions. Cards are located in Nativity church’s narthex.

To donate, click on “online giving” at the top right of this page, or pick up an order form in the narthex of the church.
THANK YOU!

JOIN US FOR THE ROSARY

One of our most powerful weapons is the Rosary. It is not enough to carry the Rosary in your purse or pocket or have it sitting around the house or hanging from the rearview mirror of your car. We need to say it, and it can be more comforting and powerful when said in a group. Think about joining us in the Adoration Chapel on Mondays from 10am to 11am. Everyone is welcome. If you have any questions, please call Kathy at 667-3173.

 

DONATE YOUR USED FURNITURE AND APPLIANCES

The St. Vincent de Paul Store is back open and ready to accept donations. They are in need of used appliances and furniture. They will come to you to pick-up these donations. Please call 882-3360 and God bless you for your generosity!
