Sunday Nursery

"Whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it."  Mark 10:15



Would you like someone to watch your toddlers so that you and others can fully appreciate Mass without distractions? From September until May (except for a few holidays), our parish Religious Education Program offers nursery care during the Sunday 10:30 a.m. Mass at no cost for children up to the age of 3 years. (We have Religious Education classes for children 3 years old and above.)


What you need to know about the Nursery
The Nursery opens at 10:15 a.m. to allow parents time to drop off their children and be seated in the church for Mass. Children cannot be left unattended in the Nursery; please wait until an adult volunteer arrives before leaving your child. All children must be picked up after the 10:30 a.m. Mass ends. Please check the bulletin or the Religious Education activity calendar for dates when the Nursery is not available.


There is no need to formally register your children for this program. We ask that you sign a sign-in and sign-out form and provide your cell phone number (where applicable) in case of emergency. (You should put your phone on "vibrate" during Mass in case there is a problem.)


Where to sit during Mass
If possible, we ask that parents sit on the right side of the Church, on the piano/choir side near the wall aisle. If your child becomes overly distressed, a staff member can call a parent out of Mass to remove the child from the Nursery.


The Nursery is for infant and toddler children who are up to the age of 3 years old. (Children who are 3 years old and older are invited to participate in our Religious Education classes.)



Volunteer assistants staff the Nursery on a regular basis. If you are interested in volunteering in our nursery on a rotating basis, please contact us; we would love to have you join us!


If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, please keep them home from the Nursery: chills, sore throat, diarrhea, fever over 100 degrees, runny nose, ear ache, rash, vomiting, flushed face, severe or raspy cough, or eyes that are red, itchy, swollen or runny. Your cooperation will help to keep the children and staff healthy!
