Young Family Ministry

Formerly called “Young Adult Family Ministry,” this community was the first of its kind in our Diocese. We love the opportunities for families with young kids to get together monthly, develop friendships, and support each other in growing in faith.

We’re taking the next step and EXPANDING our ministry to welcome families in wider stages of life, from pregnancy to elementary age kids. In our ministry, “family” encompasses families in all shapes and sizes- married couples, single parents, adopted children, one child, multiple children, etc. It’s great to talk to peers about the joys and challenges of raising a family, and it’s also a blessing to learn from someone just a step ahead of you. If you have a young child, we welcome you in our community!

Special Opportunity for You and Your Children!

Help Stella Marina Build Birthing Kits!
Sunday, March 22 after all morning Masses | Nativity School Cafeteria

You and your family are invited to come down to build a clean birthing kit for the midwives in Haiti and meet Dr. Eugène Maklin, of New Hope Hospital, Plane du Nord, and staff from Food For The Poor as we celebrate ‘making a difference one baby at a time’. There will be refreshments and highlights of some of those in our own church family who are helping make a difference in Haiti.
Making a birthing kit is easy and takes only a few minutes.

Meet our Director

Welcome to our Young Family Ministry! I was born and raised in Burke (rare, I know) and went to Nativity growing up. I have a BA in Theology from Mount St. Mary’s University and have been working in parish ministry since 2012.   I’m here to help you find community with other young families and to encourage you as you grow in your relationship with God. Let’s get some coffee and talk!

Meet our Program Assistant

Hi! I’m Mary.
If I’m not in the Youth Ministry Room managing Instagram accounts, then you can find me at Trader Joe’s buying 72% Dark Chocolate or in a field practicing photography.

My job is to assist Alison in any way I can to make sure that our ministries run smoothly and attract more people to Jesus Christ. Contact us anytime for more information about what our College, Young Adult, and Family ministries have to offer you.

God bless, and we hope to see you soon!
