Parent Night Out! Dec. 5th

Parent Night Out!       

Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015         6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Nativity Church

-hosted by your Nativity parish staff

What is this all about?          At the conclusion of the 2015 Diocese of Fargo “Year of Marriage and Family” we, as your Nativity parish-family, want to celebrate all families and their children by giving you, the parent(s), a night off.

That’s right parents….we want to give YOU THE NIGHT OFF! YOU are to leave the building and find something to do for three hours, however, you are to come back to pick up your children at 9:00 PM.

Who is included?       All children, ages 2 months to 12 years, will be our guests for the evening.

Will there be a meal included for the children? Yes, a dinner will be included for all of the children. Babies will be fed bottles that their parents provide.

What is the cost?       No cost. We want to spoil you and your children for the evening.

Is there a pre-registration?              Yes, during the month of November we insist on a pre-registration so we know the number of children and their ages, however, there is no cost for the registration. Pick up your registration form in the Gathering Space or the parish office.

When is the deadline to register?   All families of our parish may register during the month of November. The deadline to pre-register is Monday, November 30, 2015. No one will be admitted after this date and no one may walk in the door on December 5, 2015 who has not already pre-registered.

What will our children be doing during the evening? We will keep your children busy in age appropriate activities including: games, arts and crafts, gym activities, singing in church, movies, etc…

Where do I drop off and pick up my children?  You may attend the 5:00 PM Saturday liturgy at Nativity and then drop off your children after that liturgy. We will be at the registration table in the Gathering Space at 5:45 PM to welcome your children. Pick up will be at the same spot at 9:00 PM. Please be prompt. J

Can you help out once a month?

Children’s Liturgy of the Word


We are hoping to begin on Sunday, October 4, 2015 Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 11:00 AM Mass. All children ages 4-9 are invited to take part.

This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to personally share their faith with those children who are part of their lives. Make a habit of talking to your child on the way home about what God (of Jesus) was saying in the gospel story. How do we as a family respond to God’s Word? When parents share their faith it draws children into the heart of the Christian community and invites us all to grow up in Christ.

We need two more leaders who would volunteer once a month at the 11:00 Mass to take their turn leading the children. Please give our coordinator, Judy Petermann, a call to find out more information. 701-478-9988
