Nativity Nights

Check back for the complete 2017 schedule soon!

Nativity Nights are parish-wide celebrations held throughout the year—one during each liturgical season.  The nights include three hours during which families can spend time in Adoration and go to Confession.  Each Nativity Night also includes a social hour, during which dinner is provided.  You are invited to come for as much of the Nativity Night as you can; ten minutes spent with the Lord is still valuable time with Him! Adoration is from 4:00pm-7:00pm, with food in Ryan Hall from 4:30pm-7:30pm.
