Welcoming the Little Ones

All are welcome to bring your 1-5 year olds to the Nursery room at the church during the 9 AM & 11 AM Masses where youth and adults will work, play and engage your child with the love of our Lord, Jesus. This program takes place on the first – fourth Sundays of the month, September – May, excluding Easter Sunday. During the summer months Welcoming the Little Ones will take place on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.

Adult volunteers are need as leaders and teens are needed as assistants. All volunteers are required to complete “The Essential Three.” See volunteer requirements on our web page for details.


When not in use for “Welcoming the Little Ones” our nursery is still open for families. Take a walk through our Sacristy and you will find a warm, kid-friendly environment designed just for you and your children. Toys, crayons and play stations will help your child release their “kid-wiggles” while the TV monitor is cued in to the liturgy so parents can continue their own worship. A parent or guardian must accompany the children.
