The Nursery is here when you are ready!

Children are an integral part of our community and are always welcome to be in the Church during Mass. If your family decides to remove younger children from the church, there are a few great options to care for your child and stay engaged in the liturgy.

  • A glassed-in vestibule under the organ loft at the back of the church is equipped with recently renovated speakers.
  • There is a tv broadcasting the Mass in the hallway near the bathrooms in the commons.  
  • The nursery is available for children three and under during the 9am and 11am Masses on Sunday.
The Nursery: Where little ones play, explore, and get introduced to the Mass!
  • Saint Bridget offers a professional staff to care for infants and children up to age 4 or of a maturity level to attend Children's Litergy during both 9am and 11am Masses each Sunday.  
  • The nursery is located behind the bathrooms across from the kitchen; any usher can help you find us. 
  • Mass is always live on the TV in the Nursery.  
Introducing your Child 
  • Let your children get comfortable with us by bringing them to play after the 9:00am Mass or before the 11:00am Mass.
  • Please feel free to stay and/or drop in as often as needed to allow your child(ren) to become comfortable with us.
  • You are always welcome to bring your child(ren) to the nursery during the middle of Mass if they get restless!
  • If you decide to use the nursery on a regular basis, we ask that you please volunteer to help us during one Mass approximately every three months.
  • Note that we release the children back only to the person who brought them to the nursery until we get to know your family! 

We want to know about any food allergies your child(ren) have. 


Everything in the Nursery is sanitized after each classroom use!

Teen Volunteers

In addition to the adult staff, we often have teen volunteers in the nursery, who may receive service hours for their time.  Teens interested in helping should stop by before or after the 9am or 11am Masses on Sunday or contact Maria Wilson for questions or additional information.

“Having the nursery available during Mass is a huge blessing to our family. The women in charge of the nursery are caring and capable. Our children enjoy getting to see and play with their friends each week. The availability of the nursery gives our family an opportunity to focus on the Mass as well as serve during Mass. We look forward to including our children in the church when they are older.” – Chris and Shannon Jones

“The nursery has been an incredible gift to our family allowing us to more fully focus our faith every Sunday.  The caring nursery staff does an amazing job of creating a fun and loving environment for the children and truly adds to the St. Bridget community.  The excitement of the nursery provides a great alternative for those little Catholics not quite old enough to appreciate the solemnity of our beautiful Mass.”   -- Jon and Erica Stanley
