Facility / Collection Requests
Use the following forms to request the use of parish facilities for parish events or to request the use of the church vestibule for a special collection or drive.
Once you submit your request (in person at the Rectory Office or via email firstname.lastname@example.org) it will be reviewed, the calendar will be checked, and you will be contacted once it is put in the calendar or if there are any questions or problems.
1) When you fill out the facilities request, please fill out two different times…the “Event Time”, and the “Set up Time”. This will make it simpler for me to understand when you need the space, and will prevent multiple back and forth emails. For example, if you are hosting a Christmas party for Eucharistic Ministers in the Gym, your event is from 6pm-9pm, but you need to set up from 3pm-6pm. Years prior you might have put down, 3pm-9pm, however that just confuses things, especially when the event will be listed in the bulletin.
2) YOU MUST MAKE YOUR REQUEST WITH EXACT USAGE TIMES-NO BLANKET RESERVATIONS. In the past, we have allowed you to block out a room-for example, once a week in the gym from 3pm-11pm, but it has happened that the room was not in use that full time, or not at all. We are blessed to have such an active parish, therefore due to overwhelming requests we have to ask for exact times every event date. This will impact sports teams the most, as their times are somewhat sporadic. Please contact the rectory office with any questions regarding this new change.
3) Just as a reminder… doors are never ever to be left open and unattended, even if you are “right there in the gym”. It only takes one moment for someone to slip into the building who does not belong. Please post a responsible adult at the door, and have late comers either ring a doorbell OR provide a contact cell phone number, so they can have someone let them in.
