A Note from our Faith Formation Director . . .
On this weekend, when we celebrate the
Resurrection of the Lord, our parish celebrates the new life in Christ of 18 men, women, and children. At the Easter Vigil Mass they received the three sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Please continue to pray for these new Catholic Christians as they learn to live as children of the light:
Nativity Catholic Church also welcomes the following Christians who made a Profession of Faith, were Confirmed, and received Eucharist for the first time as Roman Catholics at the Easter Vigil Mass:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13).
