About Us

Nativity was established in 1923 and has been a vital part of spiritual growth of the city of El Monte. Our Religious Education Program prepares our children and adults to receive their sacraments. Our elementary school forms our students' hearts, minds, and souls in faith, knowledge, and virtue. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Vietnamese New Year & Our Lady of Lavang, Simbang Gabi, Santo Nino Mass, and OctoberFest are just some of the diverse cultural and religious events that enrich our worshiping community. Our parish offers masses in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. We also have a Filipino community that participates actively in the life of the parish. Under the spiritual guidance of our pastor, Fr. Roberto Jaranilla Jr, Fr. Joseph KimDang Nguyen (associate priest), Sr. Stacy Reineman (principal), staff, volunteers and parishioners, we strive to embrace and reflect the values of the Gospel and to share them with those around us. For more info, please explore our site or contact us.

We, the People of God of Nativity, believing we are the Body of Christ, acknowledge Jesus as the center of our parish community. We deepen our relationship with Christ through personal and communal prayer, giving flesh to a Christ-centered welcoming community. We are sensitive to the diverse cultural and spiritual needs of all our brothers and sisters in Christ. We rejoice that the faith life of the community is enriched by the many gifts brought by the diverse ethnic groups. We believe we are called in faith by Jesus to recognize His presence especially in the poor, the lonely and dispossessed. We will work towards a just and peaceful world by beginning with self, family, and parish community. We hope to share our faith through evangelization and strive to grow together in a deeper understanding of the gospel message. By living out this Mission Statement, we hope to bring closer the Reign of God so greatly desired by Our Savior, Jesus Christ.
