Four years after conceiving the project and 18 months after starting construction, Nativity Church dedicated its new chapel, office building and residence for parish priests. Archbishop Thomas Wenski consecrated the chapel in front of a virtual congregation May 3, 2020, as the Mass was livestreamed on the parish’s website and Facebook page.
Father David Zirilli, Nativity’s pastor, said the project solves several space problems for the parish: a lack of meeting space for the ministries; offsite and limited housing for the priests; and the need for a smaller worship space for daily Masses, some school Masses, weddings and funerals. All three of the new buildings are on the grounds of the old rectory/office.
