We will be starting a new babysitting program to give parents a hand during the 10:00 Sunday Mass. Children from infants to age 4 may be left with adult chaperones in the Kindergarten classroom at Our Lady of Grade school. The age limit will be strictly enforced. All chaperones will have background checks, and we plan for at least 2 volunteers at a time. If you wish to use the program, we ask that you take a Sunday helping. We need donations of safe, clean toys and a rocking chair. A small travel crib would also be wonderful to donate or lend. For questions or help, please contact Laurie Vitek at 770-654-9707. Start date to be announced.
