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

Dear Parishioners,

Mission Days: These short daily meditations and prayers between Ascension and Pentecost are being emailed daily. If you are not getting them, please let me know. A link is also on our website.

PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS: Health for Jon and Kathy Rawitzer, Pam Escobar, Joe Kremers, Daniel Goff, Caroline Real and her baby (due next month), and for two parishioners in need; safe delivery for Melissa Scheck and baby.

BIRTHDAYS: McKenna Burns (Thursday). Many years!

THANKS to all of you who have continued to support your parish financially during the past few months. Our regular routines have been altered, but you won’t be surprised to learn that our bills still come in the same way they always have. Thanks for your generous donations.

I THINK IT’S INTERESTING:
Some statistics about our recent website visitors from the period of March 15 to May 17: 83% were new vistors to our website. 68% were from the USA. 15% from Australia. 290 users were from Sydney, Australia, 118 from Eugene. 26 visitors were from Melbourne, 0 from Dexter.

JUST SO YOU KNOW: We do not say the prayer, “Heavenly King, Comforter” from the Ascension until the day of Pentecost.

If anyone has any needs we can probably help! Just let me know! I pray for you all and especially for those who cannot join us for services at church, but are praying with us via live internet video.

Call, text or email if you have any questions, or needs. God be with you,
