Hall Rentals


What size rooms do you have for rent?

Our main hall has a capacity of 269  for a stand up affair, 213 with seating at tables if you are not serving alcohol, and 184 with seating if you are serving alcohol.   We have round tables as well as 6’ and 8’ rectangular tables and 200 chairs. 

We also have a room suitable for a group of up to 20 people, with access to a kitchen with a stove, fridge, coffee maker and dishes.

What is the cost to rent your hall for a private function?

Hall Only:  The rental fee is $50 per hour with a minimum four hour rental (i.e. $200) up to a maximum of $500, plus insurance, a refundable security deposit and optional cleaning fee (see below). The basic fee includes access to our hall and kitchen, and use of our tables, chairs, sinks, fridges, and coffee makers.  Those paying the $500 maximum may be allowed access to the hall the evening before your event, depending on availability at the time of booking.

Kitchen Equipment: There is an additional fee $100 for the use of the stove/ovens, dishwasher and/or dishes and cutlery.   

Insurance: The cost of insurance depends upon the number of guests and whether you will be serving alcohol. Please check with our Parish Administrator as to the rates for your particular situation. 

SmartServe: If you are serving alcohol, you will be required to have it served by someone with SmartServe training.  We require a copy of the server’s SmartServe certificate. 


What is the cost to rent a smaller room?

The cost for this varies depending on the number of people, length of time, and use of kitchen facilities for your event. See below for contact information.
