The State of Illinois has issued a "Shelter-in-place" edict for the State of Illinois beginning 5:00 P.M. on Saturday, March 21, 2020. As of that point, all regularly scheduled services at Nativity of the Virgin Mary will be suspended until further notice. Please continue to pray for the Lord's mercy for all!

As Baptism marks the beginning of our life in Christ, we all were introduced to a Mission. Our goal is to call others and to become full participants in the Love of God, sharing in God's Kingdom both here and now, and that which is to come.
