Are you a St. Patrick Church of Merna parishioner with a toddler (9 months/mobile to 3 years old)? Would you like to attend Mass and be able to pray, participate and HEAR the whole homily? The nursery is open during the 9:00am and 11:00am Mass times. All you have to do is register your child! Register online below or registration forms can be obtained at the Welcome Center or nursery office.

Make Mass the most meaningful, prayerful hour of your week. Leave with a renewed spirit and a happy child!

  • The nursery is open to all registered toddlers during the 9:00am and 11:00am Masses.
  • We offer same-day service ~ register and use immediately!!
  • Our playground, which is only accessible by going through the nursery, is a welcome sight to any busy toddler!
  • The nursery is a ministry of love.  It is completely free, and you will not find better childcare anywhere!

We would be delighted to have your toddler in our nursery!! We believe your child is a special gift from God – so we want to provide the best love and care possible. All children cry sometimes when being left by parents. We understand and expect it. In most cases, crying stops a few moments after you leave. If your child continues to cry after five or ten minutes, we will send someone to notify you. Please sit on the choir side of the church in case a Nursery Team Leader needs to contact you.

Contact Pam, the nursery coordinator, at if you have any questions.
