Renew Spring Season February 11th - March 23rd

posted Jan 10, 2018, 9:14 AM by Sarah Maris

Please consider joining a small faith-sharing group. The groups will meet once a week for 6 weeks staring the week of February 11th.

Renew groups generally involve 5 to 10 people. Faith sharing is not discussion, nor problem solving, nor scripture study. Each person shares at the level where he or she feels comfortable. The groups can choose from a variety of topics and meeting formats. All are welcome.

We share our faith to help each other see God in our lives.

“Only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary.” (Pope Benedict 16th)

Please contact Tom Babcock at 732-530-9282 if you have any questions or would like to sign up for a group.

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)
