Our primary purpose as catechists is to help the children entrusted to our care and their parents who are their primary educators, to fall in love with Christ and His message, to grow in knowledge and understanding of the faith, and to become willing disciples of Christ.
Did you know that in 1921 the little community that would later become Nativity Parish was built on a site given by Mrs. J.S. Torrance on what is now the parking lot?
God our Father, complete the work you have begun at our Baptism and continue to nourish us with the Eucharist. Strengthen within us the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Keep the Gifts of the Holy Spirit active in our hearts.
Strengthen within us the spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the spirit of Right Judgment and Courage, the spirit of Knowledge and Reverence. Fill us with the spirit of Wonder and Awe in the presence of the mystery of your love.
Teach us to guide our students to come to know you, to live in friendship with you, and to give witness to your Son by lives built on faith and love.
A wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel.
