Please join us for our Monthly Parish Holy Hour!
Date: Thursday, September 14, 2023
A Holy Hour is a great way to spend time in the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. The Eucharist will be present on the altar and we will have time for both communal and silent prayer.
All are welcome to attend the dedication of the Interior Marian Courtyard on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. The dedication will take place immediately following 8am Mass. Please gather by the windows overlooking the courtyard in the hallway between the chapel and the parish library.
The Church of Nativity Book Club will meet on Monday, September 25th at 7pm in the Parish Library. The book will be The Great Hurricane: 1938 by Cherie Burns.
On the night of September 21,1938, news on the radio was full of the invasion of Czechoslovakia. There was no mention of any severe weather. By the time oceanfront residents noticed an ominous color in the sky, it was too late to escape. In an age before warning systems and the ubiquity of television, this unprecedented storm caught the Northeast off guard, obliterated coastal communities, and killed seven hundred people.
The Great Hurricane: 1938 is a spellbinding hour-by-hour reconstruction of one of the most destructive and powerful storms ever to hit the United States. With riveting detail, Burns weaves together the countless personal stories of loved ones lost and lives changed forever – from those of the Moore family, washed to sea on a raft formerly their attic floor, to Katharine Hepburn, holed up in her Connecticut mansion, watching her car take to the air like a bit of paper.
