Little Ones


The Little Ones of the Little Way Ministry is a nursery program for children ages 9 months to Pre-K. Our mission is to provide love, care, and formation to our children under the patronage of St. Therese of Lisieux and her ‘Little Way’ of doing small things with great love.

The nursery is open during weekend Mass times:

  • Saturday 5pm
  • Sunday 9am, 11am, 1pm, and 6pm

Registration for childcare during weekend Masses is requested. Spaces are limited so arrive early.  Children will be accepted for sign-in 15 minutes prior to the beginning of Mass.




Once a year, we request new enrollment information for your child.

Even if you have previously registered for our Nursery ministry, we ask that families update information about their growing kiddos once a year in the fall when all our other programs are renewing.

Registration is open year-round. Nursery Policies

Ministry Childcare Request

If you are a ministry leader and interested in having childcare for your members during an upcoming or ongoing event please submit the form below.

Ministry Childcare Request



Childcare during Adult Faith Formation programs is provided by our Little Ones of the Little Way Nursery staff. Registration for childcare during adult events is by individual event date and time. This allows the nursery to be properly staffed to handle the quantity and ages of children registered, and ensures a safe environment for our children.
