Little Saints is a parish ministry that supports families in their faith development through caring for the young children of the family during Adult Education programs, and select parish events.
It is open during many of the adult ed programs. Check the on line registration form below for specific information about when Little Saints is available.

Little Saints Guidelines
- Suggested Donation: in order to provide quality care we have volunteer and paid care providers in Little Saints. We ask a donation of $2.50 per child per hour to help support the Little Saints ministry. Checks can be written out to St. Stephen the Martyr. The caregivers have envelopes for donations received throughout the year. We do use the honor system, and we ask that you pay according to your ability. No one will be turned away.
- Be on time when dropping off and picking up your children. The caregivers need preparation and clean-up time each day.
- You must be attending an Adult Education Class, other parish function. A parent must be on site.
- Children are served a small snack during the session (crackers, goldfish, teddy grahams, etc…) and water. Donations of snacks, Kleenex, paper towels, baby wipes, extra diapers, napkins, small cups, paper plates, etc… are greatly appreciated. They can be given to the caregivers at any time throughout the year.
- Label all belongings (diaper bags, sippy cups, etc…). This helps when the caregivers need to find a diaper bag to change a child, a special blanket, etc…
