Easter Food Collection Update

posted Mar 31, 2020, 8:30 AM by Sarah Maris

Food Pantry
At this time Basic Needs has discontinued to collect food for the Easter Baskets. With that said, the Basic Needs committee feels compelled to fulfill our requests from the organizations and families who we provide food to. Basic Needs will be purchasing all of the food, and arrange delivery and pick up for the holiday baskets. We appreciate all of the food and dollar contributions that have been donated thus far. Stay well.

Spiritual Communion Prayer During our Time of Isolation

posted Mar 29, 2020, 11:26 AM by Sarah Maris   [ updated Mar 31, 2020, 3:19 PM ]

Behold the Lamb of God

My Jesus, 

I believe that You
are present, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament,
and take comfort in turning to you.

In these days of isolation and quarantine, I miss so much the chance to receive you in Holy Communion, and to be united with my sisters and brothers in person.

My deepest desire is to receive You into my soul, to be nourished by You, the Bread of Life.  Since I cannot while in isolation receive you physically, I ask that You fill my heart with Your presence and love.

Protect me from harm, and never allow me to be separated from You.

Amen.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for Children's Liturgy of the Word

posted Aug 27, 2019, 3:09 PM by Sarah Maris   [ updated Aug 27, 2019, 3:17 PM ]

Childrens Liturgy
"His law is love and His Gospel is peace." 

Who will bring Jesus' message of love and peace, the WORD, to the children?

Most Sundays, during the Religious Education School year, we offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word at 9:30 Masses for Preschoolers through 6th grade. The children hear the readings and an explanation of those readings at their own age level. 

If you have musical, talent we need you too! The children sing a song at the beginning and also sing the Psalm and Gospel Acclamation. It takes quite a few volunteers to facilitate this worthy endeavor! 

 Please consider signing up to help out. There are lesson plans available at our website. If interested please contact Annie DiDomenico at VBS@NativityChurchNJ.org 

 Thanks so much.
