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).

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)
