All Public Masses at Nativity are to cease with the exception of funerals, which will continue with immediate family only.
- The church will be made open for public prayer. We are working on a schedule. If you are sick, please stay home and take care of yourself. Any person over the age of 60 or who has an underlying health condition (such as respitory, heart issues or diabetes) is strongly encouraged to stay home.
- All Faith Formation Classes are being suspended, and we will move to a Home Base Faith Learning Model.
- All Events at Nativity have been canceled or postponed for the month of March. We will evaluate our events for April in the near future. Note: Mission will be rescheduled.
- The Nativity School is also closed until April 20 under direction from Erie County Executive.
