Ministries For Children

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

This program is during Mass when the priest invites children (ages 4-9) to go to a separate area for Mass readings and Catholic faith teachings. Volunteers teach and offer assistance during these sessions.

St Brendan offers nursery care for children 6 months to four years of age in the Carter Center during the 8:45 and 10:30 AM Sunday Masses. The children will be kept safe and entertained while you enjoy a more peaceful mass.
The nursery is typically closed on the following days/holidays:

  • Holy Days of Obligation
  • Easter
  • Memorial Day Weekend
  • Labor Day Weekend
  • Thanksgiving Weekend
  • Christmas Weekend (if it falls near the weekend)
  • 4th of July Weekend (if it falls near the weekend)

If possible, the nursery is open for the Parish Mission and during other special events such as First Communion.
