Quiet play area for young children:
We want this conference to be enjoyed by all families as families...we welcome all ages! We will not have a nursery or kid drop-off area, but we are making plans to help parents comfortably enjoy the conference with their wee ones.
There will be a tot tent available for infants, toddlers, and young children. Formal babysitting services will not be available, but parents can rest assured of a child-friendly space in which they will not miss out on the opportunity to hear the presentations. The covered play area will have speakers to enable parents to hear the presentations while monitoring their own children. The area also includes a changing table, toys, books, and activities. Feel free to bring your own little toys or quiet, educational activities, but please no noisy toys.
Each of the talks is one hour with a break or other activity in between. Please feel free to use the break times to explore the grounds, teach the stories of the Holy Bible seen in the artwork throughout the church, walk through the photographic exhibit on the Eucharistic Miracles of the World, enjoy the beautiful weather we’re saying prayers for, or just spend precious time as a family together discussing the topics of the talks.
If you have suggestions about making this event more family-friendly, please let us know...parents of wee ones are on the organizing committee, and we’re planning on enjoying this event with our little kiddos, too.
