Msgr. Lawrence M. Purcell

Welcome to the Church of the Nativity in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

The names of our parish, Nativity meaning the birth of our Savior, and of our area, Santa Fe or Holy Faith in Spanish, remind us every day of our special calling to embrace God's gift of baptism by believing that God knows from personal experience what it is to be human.

The heart of our holy faith is the Eucharist, the sacrament of God's love for us that makes us one with Christ in flesh and blood. Our Lord's Day worship brings us together as a family and strengthens us to witness to God's love for us by serving the human needs of others.

Please pray with us and for us. May God bless you abundantly.

Fr. Lawrence Purcell
