There is a fee for renting the PAC. It is $600 for kitchen, gym and cafeteria and $400 for kitchen and cafeteria. There is also a refundable $300 cleaning fee. One half of the rental fee ($300 to include gym and $200 without gym) is required to reserve the PAC and it is nonrefundable.

As part of the rental fees the renter may use our tables, chairs, appliances, and ice machine. They may also use our drink dispensers and coffee pots. All other items must be provided by the renter. The parish no longer has linens for private use. The Parish Life Director will meet with you prior to your event to show you where everything is. A monitor will be on site for setting up and for the event.
The $600/$400 fee permits use of the building the evening before from 5:00 P.M.—9:00 P.M., if schedule allows. You may also get into the PAC the day of the event by 9:00 AM,
The renter is responsible for clean up or the $300 deposit will not be refunded. A cleaning checklist is attached. Anything on the cleaning checklist that is not completed forfeits the entire $300 cleaning fee. The Parish Life Director will review the checklist with you at the end of your event. The refund will be mailed to you within two weeks.
All events including clean up must conclude by 10:30 PM.
