  • A $500 security deposit is due 30 days prior to the event. This is separate from the rental.  You will have the option to clean the hall yourselves, within the allotted rental time or we will keep $300 of the deposit to pay for cleaning services.
  • The space is approximately 5,000 square feet and 80×64.
  • The maximum number of people allowed in the Hall is 300.
  • The rental comes with use of 120 chairs and 15 round tables.  If you need extra tables, they are rentable at $5 per table.  We don’t have the ability to rent chairs beyond 120.  You may bring your own folding or rented folding chairs.
  • The Kitchen is non-commercial which means there is no cooking allowed.  You may use the refrigerator/freezer (provided there is space) and the warmer and counters.
  • You may bring music to play, but it must be off by 10pm.
  • The hall can be rented until Midnight (but no music after 10pm).
  • SATURDAYS:  We do not rent from 4:30pm-6:30pm due to Reconciliation and Mass
  • SUNDAYS:  We do not rent from 8am-12:30pm due to Masses.

In order to book the hall (and save the date on our calendar), we require the insurance to be purchased, the deposit paid, and the contract signed.

We have many events, so it’s helpful for you to let me know what date/dates you are considering, to confirm if the date/time is open.  Call me if you have any further questions or would like to look at dates or book the hall. Do not purchase insurance until you confirm the Hall is available.

Thank you!

*Registered parishioner means you have registered via our registration form and in our system for more than one year ago.
