Nativity Parish is an Eastern Catholic parish which celebrates the Byzantine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
"We believe that the venerable and ancient tradition of the Eastern Churches is an integral part of the heritage of Christ's Church . . . the first need for Catholics is to be familiar with that tradition..."
- Pope John Paul II, Orientale Lumen, "Light of the East" (1995)
"That the Eastern Catholic Churches and their venerable traditions may be known and esteemed as a spiritual treasure for the whole Church."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Prayer Intention for November 2011
