Child Care

This ministry plays a vital role in the lives of families with young children. We support the encounter, growth, and witness of the entire family by offering care during various parish-sponsored events and by modeling and teaching the Catholic faith to the little ones that we serve. All parishioners high school aged and older who have a love for Jesus and a heart for children are welcome to join this ministry. There are a variety of service opportunities and volunteer commitment levels available so please reach out for more information today!

Please contact Lindsey Rothschild with any questions or concerns. Thank to you all the volunteers and volunteers’ families who serve this ministry!

From a Volunteer:

Why volunteer with our child care ministry? You get to care for precious children who are always ready for fun in big comfortable playrooms with lots of toys and books. Not to mention, the moms and dads are ever so grateful for the care we give and the faith-filled time it provides them. All this makes for a wonderful way to contribute to the life of our church. Some program offerings for parents change from time to time, and so would the childcare schedule. One morning a week is common for us as caregivers, but we also have some who prefer more or less time. There are options for all schedules - chat with Lindsey!

From a Parent:

Having childcare available through OLGC has been incredible for our family. Lindsey and all of the volunteers are so kind, welcoming, and very fun. My two children, Isaac (3) and Monica (1) go once a week, and they always leave so happy, often with lots to share about their time with the volunteers and the other little friends they have made. Having childcare available has allowed me to get more involved at the parish and to invest in my personal formation and health through both LIFT and Grace and Grit. These are things I wouldn’t have been able to even consider had it not been for Lindsey and all of the childcare volunteers! I am truly so grateful.

From Our Director of Childcare:
