Welcome To Nativity

We, the parishioners of Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish of Lorain, Ohio, with over 122 years of faith and foundation in a Catholic Polish-American heritage, under the patronage of our Blessed Mother and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, assume the responsibility of welcoming all cultures of our Catholic and non-Catholic community by fostering the Kingdom of God. Amen.


Did you know…..

last September Pope Francis declared, the “Third Sunday in Ordinary Time is to be devoted to the celebration, study and dissemination of the word of God. This Sunday of the Word of God will thus be a fitting part of that time of the year when we are encouraged to strengthen our bonds with the Jewish people and to pray for Christian unity.” (Aperuit Illis). This year January 26th is the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Faces of Hope…
