Brief History

The first Mass was celebrated in the Town Hall in Harmony in 1905, and on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Church of the Nativity became a corporate reality, and soon thereafter the construction of the  first church was completed.  By 1956,  the growing congregation  constructed the rectory,  which included a walk-out basement to be used as the parish hall.  The current brick church building, located along Hiway 139,  was completed in 1974.  A bell tower which houses the bell from the original church, is lcoated between the church and the highway.  


The women of the parish meet as the Council of Catholic Women, supporting the mission of the diocean and national Councils, by their service to the parish and greater community.

Men of the parish are invited to participate in the ministry and good works of the Knights of Columbus.  Check with the parish office for membership contacts and schedules.
