Filipinos in NY will be Celebrating the Feast of Mary's Nativity on September 8th 2013.


On September 8th 2013 we will celebrate the 2029th birthday of Mama Mary, with all Filipinos living in New York and New Jersey and with everyone who faithfully believe the Blessed Mother of God.

Jesus said to His mother, “Woman, this is your son.” Then to the disciple He said , “This is your mother.” And from that moment the disciples made a place for her in their heart.”

We are called with the rest of humanity to accept Jesus’ gift of His Mother, and to welcome her into our home and heart. Filipinos look to Mary not exclusively as a mother but as a sister as well. This is significant to understanding how to move forward when we feel lost in the spiritual life. While as a mother propels us forward by gently beckoning and drawing us toward herself, a sister takes a slightly different approach. A sister is one who will stand at our side, either with a hand on our shoulder or a finger in our back. Still one must realize that neither approach will move us forward in the least if we are not first willing to take the step.


As Samarnon, we would like to celebrate our patron Feast of Our Lady's Nativity in a peaceful and solemn environment. As New Yorkers, we would like to send the message of unity and reconciliation to resolve the conflict in a Christian manner because whatever issues we are having right now will never stop generation-to-generation. If we will not stop this conflict right now, who do you think are the real victims? Yes, our children and grandchildren. The Samar group would like to send the message of peace and unity to Filipinos in NY and around the world.

Therefore, we would like to invite everyone to come and join us to celebrate the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 8 at St Lucy's Church 344 East 104th St New York NY. The Tagalog Mass will start at 2pm and followed by our traditional "Salu-Salo" and line dancing or maybe "Kuracha". So please feel free to bring your special food to share with others, after all this is what Filipinos are known for.


If you would like to sponsor the mass, please print the form below and email to  ourladysnativity@gmail.com then click "Sponsor Now" below.
