Rainbow Kids Program
We embrace the wonders and joys of the littlest ones in our families. St Julie’s Rainbow Program provides nursery care and age-appropriate Christian learning for children ages 3 and 4. Get to know other families with small children and discover that even toddlers share the love of Christ with one another through play and laughter. Nursery care is available for a small fee during 9:30 Mass only on Sundays. Drop off is in the nursery room to the right of the Parish Hall before Mass. A qualified catechist and a parent volunteer will provide a safe and playful hour for your child while you attend Mass. Contact one of the leaders at the 9:30am Sunday mass for more information. Older children in grades K-6th can participate in the Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
