St. Paul nursery is a great place for children to start their spiritual journey. In the nursery, children play, listen to bible stories, and learn to sing bible songs. Children are never too young to learn the love of God. We encourage ALL parents who have children under the age of 5 to please drop their children off at the St. Paul nursery before the 10:30am mass. The nursery is located in the back of the Hall in a safe and fun environment. Infants and toddlers are welcome!
