New Ministry at Nativity

posted Jun 4, 2020, 12:21 PM by Sue Hodgkiss

St. Martha’s Ministry

 

The purpose of the Saint Martha Ministry is to protect the health of all parishioners by maintaining a clean and safe environment with our church. Especially during this reopening of public services, we are looking for volunteers to assist in this ministry. Volunteers will be helping to clean the church by wiping down and sanitizing pews, door handles, railings, and other frequently touched surfaces in our church. Our ministry will work in accordance with CDC guidelines to ensure that cleaning is done in a safe and effective manner.   Please click on the link below to sign up for one of several time slots. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Nicholas at 732 741-1714 x20 (please leave a message) or email  sueh@nativitychurchnj.org

Saint Martha, pray for us that we might serve Jesus better. Help us to overcome our distractions and worries to listen to his words and be present to him this day.

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.
