College Ministry

When a student leaves high school, there is often a feeling of “what’s next?” College Ministry offers an opportunity to reconnect with your faith and your parish, especially during school breaks. Grow with us as a disciple through prayer, service, and socials. Whether currently attending school or not, this ministry is for anyone 18-21!


New to Nativity?

Summer 2021

We’d love to see you over the summer! While we work on what we’re able to invite you to over the next few months, we have a few suggestions for you:

1. Have you ever been to a Daily Mass?
Mass and then coffee or breakfast with someone is a fantastic way to spend a morning.
2. Drop on by! The Church is empty for long periods of the day and you’re welcome to drop by. Trust us when we say that it’s a very, very calming place to sit and be with the Lord, even for a few minutes.
3. Come for Adoration. We have Eucharistic Adoration every Tuesday from 5-8pm in the Church. If you enjoyed Adoration in college, come be with Jesus right here at your home parish.
4. Set up a time for a coffee. Alison would be happy to meet you, hear what’s going on with you, and suggest a few ways you could get involved this summer.

Year-round Events

When it’s safe for us to get together in person again, check back here for our regular gatherings! Whether you’re just home on breaks or living here full time, we like to offer a combination of gatherings where we can pray together, learn more about our Catholic faith, and also have time to meet new people and serve the community.

Meet our Director

Hi, my name is Alison Fram! Welcome to College Ministry. I was born and raised in Burke (rare, I know) and attended Nativity growing up. I joined a FOCUS bible study at Mount St. Mary’s University that helped me grow in a personal relationship with God, and I hope to help our college-age students find a similar supportive community. I’d love to meet you soon!
