What the Church Believes and Teaches

  • Finally…The Catholic Faith Explained.

Nativity Parish announces something new for adults/parents of our faith community.   We invite you to join us monthly for one or all eight DVD sessions on “What the Church Believes and Teaches”.

In the eight DVD episodes we journey through the core teachings of the Catholic Church with the goal of knowing the Faith.  Using the Creed as our guide, we will move from creation and the fall, to Christ’s redemptive Death and Resurrection, to His founding of the Catholic Church, and His coming at the end of time.

No registration, no homework, no worries.  Just come and relax on these Wednesday evenings and be ready to learn something new.

The Treasure

We have good news! We have opened our treasure chest here at Nativity and will bring brand new faith jewels to our parish. Our religious curriculum for Faith Formation, Grades 1-3,  is entitled, “Finding God; Our Response to God’s Gifts”. What a wonderful title. Because that is our mission, no matter what age we are. God always calls us first. God always makes the first move. We listen and are called to respond to God’s call. We are all about finding God- all of the time.

This new series, designed by parents, for parents, fully engages our children on the jewels of the Catholic Church. We have been looking at this series for a long time and are so pleased that we can offer our children the very best of what is out there. Our team of catechists are supported every step of the way as they lead the children through active learning on the full teachings of the Catholic Church. Beautiful art, drama and song bring Bible stories to life for children. Also included in each lesson are practical suggestions on how to bring faith home to everyday family life.

Parents, (and I mean both mothers and fathers), now is the time to say YES. Will YOU help open our treasure chest and share the jewels of our faith with our children? Don’t wait until it’s too late and our children have grown up and gone on their own way. Our children need you now.
