Nativity Catholic School students incorporate prayer and the sacraments into daily school life. Each day starts with prayer as a school lead by students and the staff. Teachers use prayer and Scripture throughout the day to teach about the way we should treat others and the way in which we should honor God. Nativity students and staff, from kindergarten to 8th grade, come together each Thursday morning, as well as other holy days, to celebrate Mass.
Baptism: Students who have not been baptized before entering school and whose parents would like to work with them to receive the sacrament are welcome to contact Rosalie Hawthorne, Director of Religious Education, for information on celebrating the sacrament of baptism. Rosalie can be reached at the Nativity Parish Office at 359-6075 or email@example.com .
Reconciliation: Second grade is the year in which our students receive the sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Daily religion classes along with family learning activities involve the entire family in celebrating the sacrament. Nativity students in grades 2-8, have an opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation twice during the school year, during Advent and Lent.
Eucharist: Many of our students also receive the sacrament of Eucharist for the first time in second grade. Daily religion classes prepare students to receive the sacrament while family sharing and activities enable the entire family to celebrate. Students who are not Catholic are welcome to come forward during Mass for a blessing when others are receiving Eucharist.
Confirmation: At Nativity, students are confirmed in their sophomore, junior or senior year of high school. Please contact Rosalie Hawthorne, Director of Religious Education, at 359-6075 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
