All children ages newborn to 3 years are welcome to attend the Nursery at no charge. The Nursery is open during the 10:30 am Mass on Sunday mornings. The Nursery will be closed on holiday weekends. It is located in the lower level of the church by the Mary statue. Safe Environment policies state that two adults need to be present at all times so there may be extraordinary circumstances requiring it to be closed.  We hope you find the Nursery a safe and happy place to leave your children while you celebrate the Mass.
