Co-op Nursery

The Nursery is not currently open.  We are looking for someone to head this important ministry.  Please call the office if you are interested at 336-294-4696.

The Nursery was open for the 10:30 am mass on Sundays. It is also open during the 9:30 am Sunday Faith Formation classes, in between the 8:30 and 10:30 masses. We are still in need of volunteers to assist with this important ministry.

The Nurserywas open to children 4 weeks-4 years old. It is available to all families who need care for their children while they attend mass or attend/teach classes. Parents must remain at the church while their children are in the Nursery. Children must be signed in and out by a parent (or older sibling with parent consent).

The Nursery was a time for children to freely explore and play in a safe, nurturing environment. Please make sure your child has any items that may be needed during this time. This may include diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, bottle, cup, etc. We can provide water from the sink/fountain if needed, but snacks will not be provided during this short period of time. If your child has any special needs or anything the caregivers should know, please share this with them so they are well-prepared to care for your child. Please do not bring your child to the Nursery if he/she is sick.

An adult caregiver will be in the Nursery at all times. All adults are required to complete the Protecting God’s Children course, as well as a background check. Youth caregivers are not required to take the course, but they can only volunteer with an adult present.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you are interested in volunteering  please contact Jeannine Martin.

The Yarn Ladies

Formerly known as the Prayer Shawl Ministry and the Wild and Wooly Knitters.  Those two wonderful groups combined to gather to knit and crochet baby items, hats and scarfs for the Women’s Hospital and our Food Pantry as well as prayer shawls for those who are ill or are in need of special prayers.  They meet the second Tuesday of each month.

Prayer Shawls are knitted or crocheted though they can be woven, sewn or quilted. The knitter, for example, begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. Intentions are continued as the shawl is created. When the shawl is completed it is offered a final blessing before being presented. These shawls may be given as comfort at a time of illness, bereavement or at the time of marriage, birth or at other occasions that allow us to minister to another’s need for care and comfort. As our gift is given, some recipients choose to continue the kindness by making a shawl and passing it on to someone in need. In this way the blessing flows from person to person and both givers and receivers feel the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, loving God. For additional information you may wish to visit www.shawlministry.com.  Contact: Judy Martineau at 298-4084 judym@triad.rr.com.
