Parish Stewardship Prayer

Dear God,

please guide Nativity of the Lord parish.

Help us to welcome, to worship, to teach,

to serve, and to evangelize together.

Make our parish a true community of faith,

by encouraging me to be more welcoming.

Call us to worship together,

by motivating me to always attend Mass.

Give us the ability to teach the Catholic faith,

by inspiring me to learn more about You and Your Church.

Motivate us to serve others,

by opening my eyes to see Jesus in every person.

Encourage our parish to evangelize,

by removing my fear of sharing the Gospel.

Help me to share it by my “words, deeds and Christian joy.”

Heavenly Father, send Your Holy Spirit

to Nativity of the Lord parish,

that we may truly become a holy family.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Mary our Mother, pray for us.



mount-saint-Mount Saint Joseph is located in St. Louis, MI.  Mount Saint Joseph has a beautiful social hall which is used for a number of Nativity of the Lord Parish events.  It also has a large amount of land making it a great place for many different types of activities.  It also hosts a large garden tended by dedicated volunteers to grow food which is given to the poor (and occasionally a few deer).

st-mary-locationSt. Mary’s Church is in Alma, MI.  The St. Mary’s site has Nativity of the Lord’s Parish school (still called St. Mary School).  The parish offices are located across the street from the church on Prospect St.  The Rectory is attached to the church.




Our mission is to do what Jesus commissions every Catholic to do: “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mt 28:19-20)
