One of our chief responsibilities as a congregation is to help raise the children God has entrusted to us.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent or have no children of your own, we want everyone at St. Mary’s to see it as their role to help love and nurture the youngest in our community.
Services – One of the great joys of being a multi-generational congregation is having both young and old present when we gather. If your loved one chooses to celebrate during one of the quieter moments of worship, please know you will be surprised with warm smiles and lots of doting assistance. That said, please use your judgment and take advantage of our excellent nursery, or listen to the service in our parish hall.
Age 0-3 (Nursery) – St. Mary’s offers nursery care during the Sunday morning services (10:00 a.m. in the summer, 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. during the school year). The nursery is staffed with three paid sitters and four parents of current nursery attendees. We create a fun and safe environment for our littlest parishioners while their parents worship. Ask an usher for assistance in finding the nursery.
