My name is Alexander Birchwale (but call me Alex!) and I’m so excited to be joining the music ministry team at Nativity as your Music Director and Organist. I have 17 years of experience playing piano, as well as having trained under many Broadway conductors and pianists.

There have been four different parishes in New Jersey and New York where I played and have been lucky enough to train under some incredible choirmasters and organists.

I hope to gradually bring a new sound to Nativity. I love the traditional music that many churches embrace, but have witnessed first-hand the way that modern church music energizes the choir/congregation in a new way, and can be a tangibly effective avenue into your faith.

I hope to blend the two styles in a way that can spark interest in bringing a younger audience to the church, while at the same time still speak to the people who I know are young at heart.

Thank you.

Nativity’s New Organist

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT on Attendance Limits – February 22, 2021

On behalf of Cardinal Joseph Tobin, please be aware that today, Governor Phil Murphy announced that the State has revised the current restrictions on the capacity limits for Houses of Worship. 

Effective immediately, religious services and celebrations, including wedding ceremonies, funerals, and memorial services that involve a religious service, will be able to operate at 50% capacity of the room in which they are held, with no cap on the number of individuals permitted to attend.  Services were previously limited to 35% room capacity or up to 150 individuals, whichever was less.  

Individuals attending services will still be required to wear masks and sit six feet apart from those outside of their household group.
