Sunday – 5:00pm @ Nativity of Our Lord Church
During the initial months of the pandemic Masses were not celebrated at Nativity of Our Lord and Saint Gabriel. While the Mass Intentions names were printed in the bulletin and parishioners prayed for the people listed there, we are offering a special Mass at both Nativity of Our Lord and Saint Gabriel for those intentions. November is the month when Catholics traditionally offer special prayers for those who have died, and so we will have the Mass for the Nativity Mass intentions March 13th - June 30th on Saturday, November 7th and at Saint Gabriel for the Mass intentions there March 13th - June 30th on Saturday, November 21st. The Masses will each begin at 10 am. All are welcome, however because of space constraints, please sign up at  or scan code in the bulletin.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of

Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.
