It does indeed: "If a Steering Committee meeting is to be held prior to the Ultreya, the baby-sitters should begin at 5:45 p.m.; otherwise, they should begin at 6:45 p.m. Host parish is encouraged to assume financial responsibility for baby-sitters. If this is not possible, payment will be taken out of the evening’s contributions."

PPPS: Correction from Diane to Ultreya Planning Document. The babysitter note was written before the Ultreya was moved from 7 PM to 6 PM. Steve has changed the times to 5:00 and 5:45 p.m.
