Welcome to Nativity

Nativity Catholic Church is located in the old town neighborhood of Torrance. Established in 1924, our Spanish style church and dedicated parish has been the spiritual home of many generations of believers. We are here to serve your spiritual and pastoral needs and to continue to grow as a living presence of the kingdom of God in our midst.

In our effort with the larger community to control the pandemic and to protect everyone from infection and its complications, we have temporarily closed our church to the public. It does not mean that we are completely shut down. Our parish office is available to respond to your inquiries and requests via telephone and the internet. There are certain things in life that cannot wait and attention is immediately needed.

We are also preparing for the opening of our new school year coming near the end of August and the new programs for religious education and faith formation, including RE classes and RCIA. We are always on our feet when it comes to sowing the seed of faith in the world. Toward this end, if you are in need of the Sacraments — Baptism, Confession, Communion, Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick, ... — please do not hesitate to contact us. We especially welcome those who have an interest in the Catholic faith, seeking God in their lives for a fuller meaning and purpose of their existence. We are simply a call or a text away. Contact Us anytime.

Thank you for visiting.

July 21, 2020

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

This coming weekend, the last weekend of July, our parish will begin having Mass outdoors, and it will take place on our school grounds, located at 2371 W Carson Street, about half a mile or a 5-minute walk west of the church.

The Mass schedule is as follows:

• Saturday at 5 PM

• Sunday at 7:30 AM and 9 AM in English, and 11 AM in Spanish

Please enter the school from Madrid Street. There is limited onsite parking supervised by the ushers and volunteers. Street parking in the neighborhood is a leisurely walk away. Please do not park in the residential alleys.

There will be a limited number of chairs set up in front of the altar. However, you are welcome to bring your own portable ones, and perhaps umbrellas or hats to keep yourselves shaded from the bright sun.

Please keep a good distance from those outside of your households and wear masks to give yourselves and others extra protection against the Covid-19.

We hope that this Mass schedule will only be a temporary arrangement away from the church for the time being, as we continue to get through and beyond the pandemic. We will take it one week at a time. Please check our website weekly for the latest updates.

Looking forward to seeing you at Mass, the perpetual celebration of our faith with one another as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ. Where faith is celebrated, there is unity and peace and love in the Lord that the world truly needs.

Blessings,

Fr. Tran

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.

— St. Alphonsus Ligouri
