Due to the unpredictability of this virus, Nativity has made the incredibly difficult decision to replace the traditional Nativity County Fair with a new virtual event for 2020. All will be invited to participate in the joy, laughter, and generosity which will surely mark the “2020 Fair”. We hope you’ll join us!
Parish Mission Statement
Nativity of our Lord is a vibrant Catholic community committed to helping each person answer the call of Jesus Christ to serve as his disciple by nurturing a rich sacramental and spiritual life, supporting strong Catholic education and faith formation, fostering fellowship and community, and providing abundant opportunities to participate in the parish’s long tradition of Christian witness.
The Nativity County Fair began in 1975. The Nativity community came together in order to facilitate a fun way of giving to the school that had given so much to their children and their community. The early start of the fair was a small group of volunteers who organized the parish to provide games, food, fun and even a helicopter ride in order to draw the community together in the spirit of giving. Since then many things have changed but one thing has stayed the same the NCF is a group of volunteers that come together to support our school. The Nativity County Fair is entering its 46th year of bringing joy to the Nativity community and beyond. The three day event takes place mid September on our school grounds and has become a favorite tradition in the parish and the Macalester Groveland neighborhood.
