Dear Parishioner / Non-Parishioner,

Thank you for showing an interest in having one of your many special events at St. Matthew Catholic Church. We at St. Matthew’s are proud of our church and of our facilities. For this reason we have inserted onto the website this “Use of Facilities” information to be of better service to you, your family and your event planners.


GUIDELINES FOR PARISH ORGANIZATION EVENTS
KNOW WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE THE EVENT

The church staff can't help you find the right room unless you tell them what you need. When you reserve a room, consider what will be happenning:

  • Will you have five people or fifty?
  • Do you need a table for refreshments?
  • Do you have a guest speaker who will need a podium and audiovisual equipment?
  • Will you need several tables so you can break into smaller groups?
All of this information can be placed on the reservation form. If you do not tell us "your" needs, we will do a standard setup. Unfortunately, we will not be able to change the setup on the day of your event.
This site will help answer your questions in reserving one of our several locations. Some of the items included are (each bullet header is a link to more information):
