Description

Families are welcome to have their children cared for in our nursery during the 9am and 11am mass on Sunday mornings. Our dedicated nursery staff, along with volunteers, provide care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. No reservation is required. Just bring your children to the nursery a few minutes before mass. A brief sign in procedure will be required.

Ministry groups are also invited to reserve the nursery for the children of parents attending on-site meetings and programs. Children up to 12 years of age are welcome in the nursery during parish based events. Click here for the reservation form.

Beginning in the Fall, the nursery is open when Family Faith classes are in session on Wednesdays from 4:15 to 6:15. During the time you volunteer in Family Faith, the nursery staff will care for your younger children.

Our nursery is a very spacious, safe and enjoyable environment . Click here to view pictures.
