Cry Room Information
Many ask if we have a 'Cry Room' for families with young children. The answer is 'Yes'! The room is available during all Masses and is located on the south wall of the Church. (Go to the right after you enter the church, toward the statue of Mary. The ambry containing the Holy Oils is on the wall just outside the door to the cry room.)There is a door into the Church from this room to make going to Holy Communion easier.
Take advantage of this access to Catholic educational programs, movies, books and audio files. Thousands of dollars worth of education, formation and entertainment are available at no cost to you.
