• Mary's Nativity Roman Catholic Church
  • St. Ann Roman Catholic Church

Under the Mantles of our Blessed Lady and her mother, Saint Ann, our Parish celebrates and honors a rich history of collaboration among the faithful priests, religious and dedicated laity.  Nourished by "The Power of the Most High," we strive to be vessels of Gospel values bringing a message of hope and hospitality to all we meet in our ethnically diverse neighborhood. 

Through the awareness of this mission, we seek to grow as disciples nourished by the Eucharist, accepting our call to bring forth Christ in our time, by leading lives dedicated to service and stewardship. 

We seek to become a more vibrant parish by responding to the needs of the community, spreading the message of Jesus through action and word and seeking to renew the faith of the active and non-active Catholics of the Parish.

Family Blessing

A Family Blessing

Lord of all,
bless our families.
Be they formed by blood or by circumstance,
make them holy.
May we look across all that divides us
and see family,
and embrace as a family does,
and love as a family ought to.
For where two or three gather in your name
there are you in the midst.
There indeed are you,
the one for whom we long so deeply. Amen.
