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

Glory to Jesus Christ! Слава Ісусу Христу!

Dear Parishioners,

As cases of infection continue to climb, I have come to think that it is best that we take a breather from public services. So I ask you, please, not to come to Presanctified Liturgy on Friday, nor for the Divine Liturgy on Sunday.

I will take these services with the cantors (and their families) if they wish to come, but I ask everyone else to join in by live stream, for Friday and Sunday.

I appreciate all your cooperation and support thus far. Thank you very much. Let us spend these next few days with a sense of solidarity with those who have been unable to attend services these past few weeks, and, as a parish, let us continue to pray for the end of this epidemic, for the spiritual and physical health of your fellow parishioners and your families. St. James wrote: : "Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful."

But I also add that even the prayers of a sinner like me are still heard by the Lord. So let us pray.

We will see what the situation is after this weekend and then make further decisions.

God bless and keep you all!
Fr. Richard
