The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish- known as St. Mary’s - is the largest Roman Catholic Church in Jennings County, Indiana. In 2011 we celebrated 150 years of a Roman Catholic presence in North Vernon. We are a vibrant community that strives to worship God through a solemn celebration of the Seven Sacraments, strong scriptural and traditional teaching and a lively family atmosphere. We offer to God our worship and lives and we offer to our parishioners and our community a preschool-8 school, parish festival, an active St. Vincent dePaul Society, Religious Education and Faith Formation for all ages and whatever else the Lord guides and directs us too. I hope and pray this website will be helpful in aiding you in whatever way necessary.

God Bless you today and always.

In His Priesthood,

Father Jerry Byrd
