Babies and children are warmly welcome at all Masses. There is a baby changing station adjacent to our Church bathroom, but there is no dedicated area for infants and small children in Church - please sit where you are comfortable. Many families attend the 10:00 am Mass, where children in kindergarten-4th grades are invited to attend Kids Word during the Mass (from September-May), or go to the more relaxed Gym Mass at 10:30 am in the Social Hall and Gymnasium, 1401 West Granville Avenue, which features hospitality afterwards. (The Gym Mass is offered from September - Father's Day.)
