The annual Nativity 5K Walk/Run and 1-Mile Fun Run event proudly raises awareness about health, fitness and wellness for our parishioners, students and community.

Church of the Nativity & Nativity Parish School Background
Founded in 1986 in Leawood, Kan., the Church of the Nativity currently serves 2,100 families, and continually strives to be a living expression of the Roman Catholic Church. The parish seeks to continue the works of Jesus Christ through spiritual growth, faith formation and outreach. The name, Church of the Nativity, was chosen to honor the Mystery of the Incarnation and to remind us of our call to be continually reborn into life in Christ, for “We are all God’s masterpiece…” (Ephesians 2:10). Recognized for its academic excellence by the State of Kansas, Nativity Parish School provides an exceptional Catholic education for more than 500 children from preschool through 8th grade.
