Each volunteer typically serves only 2 shifts per 4-6 month period. Please email Corinne Wolff if you can help with this ministry. Service hours are available for students.Adult volunteers must have completed Protecting God’s Children training through the diocese.

Children are a precious part of our parish family and are always welcome at Mass. If parents prefer to use the nursery, located in the church basement, it is available during Sunday morning Masses for children up to kindergarten age. ($2 suggested donation). We rely on volunteers so if you use the nursery, please try to find a time when you can also volunteer. There is a signup sheet in the nursery.
