Women of Nativity | WON

Our meetings will be held virtually and ornament sale has moved online this year!

About Us

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. All women are invited to attend!

Meeting Time: 2nd Wednesday of the month (September – December, and February – June)
7:00 pm meet & greet, 7:30 pm meeting
Location: ZOOM

Back-to-School Supplies Drive

The Women of Nativity wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to the parishioners who donated so generously to the Women of Nativity’s Back to School Supplies Collection. We were overwhelmed with the turnout of supplies, especially during these difficult times. Through your generosity, we were able to fill backpacks for Appalachia and parish school needs. Four carts filled with over 50 backpacks and supplies were also given to the Office of Migration and Refugee Services.

These supplies will be distributed to the Catholic Charities Office of Migration and Refugee Services and programs within the Parish. Supplies will ONLY be collected on the scheduled dates due to the delivery arrangements. Thank you in advance for your generous donation.

Advent Giving Tree

During the season of Advent, the WON ministry works to help those in need have a joyful Christmas by collecting donations for various local organizations.  This past year, we had over 1,500 ornaments that served many people.

This year we will be hosting an ONLINE giving tree! Stay tuned!

Baby Shower

The Women of Nativity held their annual Baby Shower in June.

MaRiah Center, Birthright, A Women’s Choice, Hope House, Stella Marina, Catholic Charities, EHCO, Lorton Community Action Center, and Divine Mercy Center all help people at various stages of the family process. Among the organizations, assistance is given to women before the birth of their child so they realize they have a choice, and continues over the early year in the child’s life so that he/she is clothed, nurtured and cared for. The families serviced have the same needs that all families do.  Your contributions make it possible for these wonderful organizations to help others! Most of these organizations operate almost exclusively with volunteers.
