August 2020- The Maritime World
The life of sailors or fishermen and their families is very difficult.
Sometimes they are victims of forced labor or are left behind in distant ports.
The competition of industrial fishing and the problem of pollution make their work even more complicated. Without the people of the sea, many parts of the world would starve. Let us pray for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.- Pope Francis – August 2020
Return to Mass and Schedule:
Nativity BVM will keep all current guidelines, schedules and protocols in place. The obligation to attend Sunday Mass in person remains suspended indefinitely, and the safety of our parishioners, clergy, staff and visitors is paramount. Please join us from home if you are considered high risk or are simply concerned about attending in person. For those attending church, masks and distancing between families will still be required. All of us need to do our part to make sure that our return to Mass is a peaceful and safe experience for all. Please take the time to read the instructions by clicking HERE.
