The celebration of the Eucharist is at the heart of what truly makes our Nativity of Mary faith community Catholic. Our time spent at Mass deepens our relationships with God and one another. Receiving Christ in the Eucharist strengthens us and gives us the necessary graces to live the spirit-filled life to which we called by God.
