Since I began at Nativity of Our Lady in 2012, I have been struck by the warmth and welcoming nature of our faith community. Not a week goes by that I do not hear from a guest or new parishioner how embraced they felt when they walked through the door into a liturgy. Yet, more times, than not, finding that front door to walk through was a challenge! We have continued to grow as a parish. We need to find better use of space. We need to care for the exterior and parking lot.

So in 2017, we began the work of defining a number of improvements to the existing facility that will improve safety, expand our seating capacity and make the church more welcoming to enhance the worship experience for all parishioners.  This website will outline our plans and how you can participate.

Since our pledge campaign launched in January of 2019, we are off to an excellent start! Perhaps this is your first glimpse into our plans. We hope you are excited about our vision and I ask for your help in making the vision a reality.  Through faithful stewardship and prayer we hope you will prayerfully consider a generous contribution.
