The Parish Nursery is available at no fee for children 1 to 4 years of age during the Sunday 9:00 am Mass, on a first come, first served basis. Diocesan guidelines regarding caregiver:child ratios apply.

We are proud to deliver age appropriate faith formation activities for our littlest Christians & welcome Catechists/Care Givers of all ages to serve.  VIRTUS requirements apply.  For more information please contact Erica Shortridge, our Coordinator of Christian Formation by email or through the parish office (434) 973-4381 x114.



Signups are now open for adult & youth volunteers in our Nursery for the 11:30am and 1:30pm (Spanish) mass times on Sundays (in addition to the 9am mass time) now. We would like to open the nursery during these times beginning 12/8/2019. Spanish speakers are welcomed during the 1:30pm mass time, however, it’s not required.

To do this….we need your help! We are looking for a minimum of 1-2 adults each Sunday to volunteer. Youth are ALWAYS welcome! VIRTUS training is required. If you’re interested, but are not VIRTUS trained, please don’t let this hinder your interest. Email me and we can figure out how to get you trained.
