Nursery Services

The Basilica warmly welcomes worshippers of all ages. However, sometimes caring for a lively toddler or vocal infant can make it challenging for parents to enter fully into worship.

We offer nursery care for infants and toddlers during Sunday 9:30am Mass most weeks in the Cowley Center, located between the church and 16th Street. Note that the nursery is no longer open for 11:30am Mass.

Childcare staff and volunteers receive background checks, must complete a VIRTUS: Protecting God's Children for Adults session, and complete and sign the Volunteer Code of Conduct and are trained and supervised by Basilica staff. Parents who use the Nursery on a regular basis need to sign up to volunteer in the Nursery once a month.
