Assist with the Liturgy

Our church and chapel are the places where our Nativity family gathers to worship together.  There are many ways you can help, depending on the gifts God has given you and how God may call on you.  Sometimes to find out what that is, we need to just try and see.  The participation of everyone involved in these ministries is important and vital to the parish community.
