Our mission is to help the parish attain its goals and missions by promoting a sense of belonging to this Christian community, and to provide opportunities for evangelization and spiritual growth through service and events within the Church as well as surrounding communities.
ONLY because our parishioners generously give to each project can we give so much. We partner with our church and many other caring groups in the Metro area that help our brothers and sisters in need throughout the year. There is a lot of planning that goes into the projects and the more hands that share the workload, the better. Look below to learn more about our projects!
The Women of Nativity enjoy camaraderie and give thanks in June and December with a social. Election of new officers is held in May and Board Members meet in July.
Meeting Time: 2nd Wednesday of the month (September – December, and February – June)
7:00 pm meet & greet, 7:30 pm meeting
Location: Fr. Ready Room
All women are invited to attend!

It is time again for the annual Women of Nativity (WON) Giving Tree project. We are excited about this upcoming event and are very grateful to our faithful partners, the generous parishioners of our Church!
On November 17/18 and 24/25, ornaments with holiday wishes will be placed on a Christmas tree in the Narthex.Learn More
The collection of candy, stuffed animals, coloring books, crayons and toys fill approximately 400 bags each year and bring joy to children serviced by many of the same organizations supported by the Back to School Supply drive which include: Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, ECHO, Lorton Community Action Center, and Carpenter Shelter.
The collection of essentials (diapers, formula, receiving blankets, etc.) for the care of babies are distributed to various crisis pregnancy centers in NoVA as well as Nativity’s Stella Marina project.
We collect items the first weekend in June.
This is WON’s only fundraiser. Proceeds cover WON’s annual operating costs and emerging needs. A generous portion of the proceeds are distributed in May to organizations in need within our parish and the local community based on the approval of the membership. The list changes from year to year.
We sell the ornaments every year in September.
