The Met Heavenly Bodies
The Met’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ Show Is Worth the Pilgrimage 
It’s gorgeous, moving, and surprisingly witty.

“What do fashion and European Catholicism have to say to each other? Everything, as it turns out, and you do not want to miss the conversation staged by the Met Costume Institute in “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Even non-Catholics will be moved — I myself felt nearly ready to convert.” 
By Rhonda Garelick of “The Cut”

Metropolitan Museum of Art Bus Trip sponsored by Nativity Women’s Group

Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018
We depart Nativity promptly at 8:30am and leave the Met at 5pm.
$50 per person covers transportation and entrance to the Met’s “Heavenly Bodies” 
Exhibit; lunch on your own. 
Space is limited!

    Meals for Lunch Break

    posted Oct 11, 2017, 1:18 PM by The Church of the Nativity

    We invite all Parishioners to come together as Nativity prepares and serves a Monthly Dinner at Lunch Break in Red Bank 

    Feed the Body, Nourish the Soul

    Join us as our parishioners cook and serve dinner the 3rd Friday of every month to approximately 150 people at Lunch Break in Red Bank.


    • COOKING: Every 3rd Thursday of the month we will meet in the Nativity Parish Hall to prep and cook from 8:30-10:30AM. 

    • SERVING: Every 3rd Friday we will be in need of volunteers to meet at Lunch Break from 5pm-7:30pm to serve and/or clean up. 

    This is an ONGOING, monthly Community Outreach Ministry, so the more volunteers involved the less of a commitment each person will have to make. No cooking or serving experience necessary! 


    Any questions, please contact one of the ministry chairs: Kathy Ramirez (Kramirez123@gmail.com )  
    Linda Gesell (732-758-8012) or (LHD121@hotmail.com), Mary Haynes (MMHaynes@comcast.net)
