Our nursery ministry is available to parents of children ages 1-4 during:
- 8:30am Mass every Sunday
- 10:30am Mass every Sunday September – May
(excluding holidays such as: New Year’s, Spring Break, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas)
The Nursery is also available during:
- Faith Formation class times for children of catechists
For Faith Formation times: All fees are waived for those who serve Monday through Wednesday nursery. Fees are discounted by 50% Sunday Nursery volunteers.
- Other events throughout the year
In order to provide this ministry we are in need of adults and teens willing to share their time and talent. Also, if you use the nursery, or have used the nursery in the past, and know the benefit of it you are encouraged to share in this ministry by being on the rotation. Usually there are 4-5 adults and teens (must have at least one adult) during Mass times.
A background check and VIRTUS are required to volunteer.
Attention all new mothers, new families, and expecting mothers! If the need arises during Mass or another OLIH ministry, please feel free to stop by the nursery to relax and nurse your little one in our dedicated space with rocking chairs. This is also intended for any upset toddler who needs a little additional comfort. If you have any questions or feedback about this, please feel free to email our nursery coordinator, Mary Sankey.
Nursery Ministry Needs Volunteers
Are you interested in volunteering in the nursery during one Sunday Mass/month? We will soon be putting together the upcoming schedule. If you're interested in helping or would like more information, please contact Mary Sankey. Please note: if you're using the nursery for your children, we would love to have you sign up to help us one Mass/month. Currently we have a lot more children in the nursery, but could use more volunteers. This is a also a great service opportunity for our Confirmation candidates!
