Parish Vision:

Through the hard work, cooperation and commitment of ALL members, Nativity of the Lord will become a Christ-centered stewardship parish that welcomes, worships, teaches, serves and evangelizes.

School Mission:

St. Mary Catholic School, a ministry of Nativity of the Lord Parish is committed to academic excellence and forms children into life-long disciples of Christ and responsible stewards of the parish, the community and the world.



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).

Parish Center
The parish offices are located in the Parish Center across the street from the church at 510 N. Prospect St., Alma, MI 48801

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)
