Service to the World, Our Impact

There are so many aspects and needs to our daily lives as people and as Christians. Here at Nativity, we are committed to serving the needs of our members as well as the needs of our community. As a parish family we do this through the service and dedication of our members. As baptized Christians, we are all called and equipped to share the Gospel - often with actions rather than words. Below you will find the names and descriptions of many of our parish ministries. We encourage you to pray about the areas were you can serve as well as the areas were other may be able to serve you.

This list is not exhaustive. There are other areas where we may need help or ideas and not even know it! We encourage you to reach out to a staff member if you’d like further information or support regarding our ministries.

Worship

Worship Ministry

"Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows." (from the Catholic Church's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.)

The Worship Ministry takes as its mission this realization of the Vatican II vision. Thus, they are entrusted to prepare well for the Church's liturgy by enabling all to share their God given gifts by providing opportunities for all of us to participate in Sunday Liturgy. It is through our celebration of Eucharist that we are called to bring the light of Christ into the world through our daily actions.

Volunteer Ministries/Opportunities
The Worship Ministry has many ways you can volunteer by looking into one of their nine Liturgical Ministries and/or five Volunteer opportunities. For more information please contact Wayne Efferson at (920) 490-1352, Ext. 206.
