St. Patrick Catholic Community nursery provides a safe and supervised childcare environment during Saturday and Sunday Masses to allow parents to worship more attentively. Pagers are provided for contact if parent needs to return to the nursery for any reason. Age-appropriate activities are planned to be fun and are faith-based. At weekend Masses, the nursery is open to little ones age 1 (and walking) to age 4 (ages 4 and older attend Children’s Liturgy of the Word). Parents of children in the nursery commit to serve in some capacity at least once a month. Adults and teens are welcome to serve at all Masses.
In addition, St. Patrick Catholic Community desires to offer childcare as necessary to assist parents attending ministries or programs at the parish. Childcare Ministers may serve as caring supervisors, mentors, storytellers, musicians or tutors for children during this time. Adults and qualified teens are welcome to serve, either daytime or evening as needed. Flexible schedule. Love for children and personal commitment a must! Events vary throughout the year, and those in this ministry will be contacted as needs arise.
