Sacrament of Reconciliation

OUTDOORS, WEATHER PERMITTING
(November 7, 14, 21, from 2-3:00 PM)

Recognizing that the precautions due to Covid-19 have limited use of the confessional, we will be offering the Sacrament of Reconciliation outdoors on three Saturday afternoons, November 7, 14, and 21, from 2-3 PM (weather permitting.) Parishioners can meet Father Jim in the outdoor Stations of the Cross on any of these three dates without needing an appointment.  There will NOT be any group celebration of Reconciliation during Advent this year, due to the pandemic restrictions.  Of course, you can continue to make appointments for individual celebration of Reconciliation by contacting the Parish Office.

(Cleaning) St. Martha’s Ministry!

posted Jun 4, 2020, 12:21 PM by Sue Hodgkiss   [ updated Sep 1, 2020, 7:17 AM by Carolyn McCarthy ]

Dear Nativity Parishioner,

We need your help!  We have a vital new Ministry at Nativity called the “St. Martha Ministry.”  This Ministry sanitizes the Church after Masses, Prayer, Funerals and Weddings.  We have several amazing volunteers now, but need more to continue to keep the Parish open and operating.

Volunteers are needed for:

·       Monday through Saturday Morning at 8:30am (after 8am Mass)

·       Monday through Friday at 4pm (after daily Prayer)

·       Saturday at 5:30pm (after the 4:30pm Mass)

·       Sunday at 8:30am (after the 7:30am Mass)

·       Funerals / Weddings as Announced

Volunteers can sign-up for consecutive dates / times (i.e. every Tuesday at 4pm) or for a single date / time.  We need a minimum of 2 people to sign-up for any given date / time slot to keep that event open, with a maximum of 6 people.  Sanitizing typically takes ~15 minutes, especially if we have a few volunteers.  Any volunteer under 18 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at: CarolynM@NativityChurchNJ.org if you have any questions or want to join this important Ministry!

Thank you & God Bless you,

Carolyn

Parish Secretary


 

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.
