Health & Wellness
Our Health & Wellness ministry encourages the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of each individual in keeping with their relationship with God, family and community.
The focus of this ministry is to understand the relationship between lifestyle and faith. We look at attitudes towards our health, and through one-on-one care or group learning opportunities, we aim to educate the community on healthy lifestyles rooted in faith. Our ministry works closely with healthcare and social agencies to provide necessary care.
Friendly Visitor Ministry
The Friendly Visitors are parish volunteers who provide one-to-one caring presence and socialization to parishioners in their homes while giving respite to the care-givers.
Eye Glass Donations
Nativity of Mary has been collecting used eye glasses to be donated to the Lion's Clubs International and specifically for the Minneapolis Airport Lion's Club for many years. A donation box is located in the Caritas Room on the bookshelf for both youth and adult glasses along with the cases if available. Sunglasses are also appreciated.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Nativity of Mary is blessed to have many dedicated women who knit and crochet beautiful prayers shawls for our parish community. A prayer shawl is intended to be a reminder of God's ever present love. It is a gift for every time and every occasion - joyful or sorrowful - for every season and circumstances of life - chosen or not chosen, when you are weeping or when you are celebrating. Wear it whenever you would like to be reminded of God's loving presence. If you or someone you know would benefit from this beautiful gift, please contact the Parish Office.
Hearing Aid Donations
Used hearing aids can also be donated and can be left near the Lion's Club donation box.
