Any St. Joseph Church organization that has an event that has a paid admission will be required to pay a set-up/tear-down fee. There is no charge to parish or school activities for use of Parish Center or meeting rooms when there is no admission charged.
At the time the Parish Center is scheduled, the Committee Chair must sign a Special Event Facility Use Agreement. Immediately, at the end of the event, all collected monies must be brought to the rectory and placed into the safe. A deposit slip must be submitted to insure that the money is deposited into the proper account. The Committee chair will receive a breakdown of all monies received and counted by the office within 7 days after the event.
The Parish Committee Chairperson must meet with Barbara Sutton or John Berg one week prior to the event. At that time a completed work order with specific information must be submitted.
