The Sunday nursery programs at Trinity Cathedral are dedicated to both parents and children. Parents are assured of a safe and pleasant environment for infants and toddlers so that they may take full advantage of Trinity’s rich opportunities for worship, learning, and fellowship. Children are provided not only with constant care and supervision, but also introduced to the early levels of Christian formation through stories, music and interaction with other children. Trinity Cathedral’s nursery is much more than a convenience or service; it is a ministry to the entire Cathedral community.
Nursery care is provided for babies (6 weeks or older), one-year-olds and two-year-olds. Care is available every Sunday morning beginning at 8:30 am for the 9:00 am. We are open for the Sunday School hour through the end of the 11:15 am service. The Nursery is also open during Evensong on Sundays from 3:30 - 5:30 pm.
The infant nursery is in Room G20 in the Parish House, and the toddler nursery is in Room G21 in the Parish House. If you enter the double doors going into the Parish House: go up the short flight of stairs, and then take an immediate left – going through the double doors, back down the stairs to the first floor.
Each classroom is staffed by paid, trained caregivers and parent volunteers. During the Sunday school year, Bible stories and prayers are presented to the one and two-year-olds. Three, four, and five year olds are expected to attend the service with their parents and to participate in liturgy preparation activities during a portion of the service.
Nurseries are also available during many programs and meetings held by the church but you will need to check on specific availability.
Parents who utilize the nurseries are assigned Host Parent Duty. Notification of this is sent in advance in email form to all parents of nursery-aged children. Reminder emails are sent the week prior to service. We cherish our volunteers and always welcome them. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to get to know the caregivers, other parents, and our children.
