At Saint Francis, children of all ages are always welcome at every Mass. Jesus said “Let the children come to me” (Mark 10:14) and so we encourage families to bring their children to Liturgy as often as they can. We also realize that some parents may prefer to leave young children in a fun, safe, Christ-centered environment so they can get more out of their time at Mass. For these families, we offer childcare for children 6 months through 2 years old during the 9:30 Sunday Mass The children will participate in play time, faith activities, and prayer. Children 3 and older may register for the Sunday School program through the Youth Faith Formation office.
Space is limited. Registration is not required however we encourage registration for planning purposes. Registration does not guarantee a spot! We operate on a first come, first served basis and a Nursery Full sign will be placed outside once maximum occupancy is reached.
The Nursery will open 15 minutes before Mass starts and parents are expected to pick up children immediately after. Snacks are not allowed in the Nursery so please feed your child(ren) before coming. We also recommend a fresh diaper or stopping at the bathroom before dropping off your child.
Please note, the Nursery will be closed during holidays so that our staff can be with their families.
