BREAKING THE MOLD
Just wanted to take a minute and thank the Loyola magazine team for the recent article about the Church of the Nativity and alumni Rev. Michael White, ’80, and Tom Corcoran, ’96.
I was fortunate enough to have had a family member suggest to us five-plus years ago to go there, and it’s been an amazing experience. Simply put, they’ve broken the mold for Church being stale and irrelevant—which is why people don’t come back.
Both men continue to lead and learn, don’t have egos that get in their way, and, I suspect, would rather admit to having so much more to do than celebrate any accomplishments to date.
Theirs is a great example of the ideals that Loyola is based upon, and I’d strongly encourage continued stories of alumni success not measured by financial metrics, but rather in building relationships and making the world better for it.

This is such a celebration of evangelization and I am proud of Fr. White and Tom Corcoran for their efforts in putting this book together. Most of all I am proud to be a parishioner at Nativity.
It is so uplifting to see the numbers grow, the children loving to come to Mass and participate in the children’s programs, the teens reaching out and volunteering and adults of all ages working together to bring Christ to others.
God has blessed the Church of the Nativity in Timonium!

We have been at Nativity for about seven or eight years. We are grateful for all that is happening there, and the fact that our four teenagers are active and involved members of the parish is nothing less than a miracle.
