Mercy Alive

Sunday Nursery & Bible Class

VOL. 37 NO. 30

Within the cherished walls of the Parish Activity Center you will find what most parents consider a haven; a space dedicated solely to the smallest of parishioners, the Nursery. Recently renovated, the nursery offers sitting services to parents of babies and school-aged children who have not yet received their 1st Communion. Babies have the opportunity to interact with children their own age, playing with age appropriate toys, and loved by the volunteers who oversee their care.

Children ages 4 through 8 have the option to attend Bible school in a separate classroom. Here an interactive lesson will be held on the Gospel reading of the day. Parents are encouraged to drop off their child and visit the nursery at any time during Mass.

Sharon Vincent, a former elementary school teacher, oversees all aspects of the nursery including the volunteer schedule. Nursery volunteers serve on a rotational basis and no experience is necessary. The only requirements to volunteer are completion of the Child Protection certification and a love of children.

Service is especially needed to teach Bible classes; you do not need to be a teacher to volunteer. New volunteers are welcome to join at any time. The Sunday nursery has such a rich tradition in our parish that many of our volunteers were once child participants during their youth.

The nursery is open to children every Sunday, except major holidays and the weekend of the school fair.
Nursery times and closures can be found in the church bulletin under Mass schedule.
Nursery times:
Sunday Mass 9:00 am
Sunday Mass 10:30 am
