The parish has two locations (both air-conditioned) available for rent to both parishioners and non-parishioners for various functions such as Bridal and Baby Showers, Banquets, Baptismal Luncheons, and Special Occasion Parties. Our facilities are available to charitable organizations for a reduced fee. Please inquire about rental rates.
WHAT IS PROVIDED?
For all rentals, the parish provides tables and chairs only. Rectangular tables only are available in St. Elizabeth Center and Neumann Hall. It is the responsibility of the renter to provide all table coverings. The set up of the tables and chairs will be done by the maintenance staff of St. Johns. A floor plan must be submitted and agreed upon at least two weeks prior to the event.
Renters are required to complete a Facility/Usage Indemnity Agreement which requires the user to provide St. John the Baptist Parish with a certificate of insurance documenting general liability coverage in the amount of $1,000,000 per occurrence. A one-time use rider may be added to your individual homeowners insurance, usually for a nominal fee, or you may purchase through the Diocese of Harrisburg for a coverage cost of $125 per event. This information is included when you contract your event.
