Equipment and Furniture Usage

Event layout should be determined ahead of time and detailed notes added to the facility reservation. The collapsible wall dividing the Parish Hall, the collapsible glass wall on the south side of the Parish Hall, and the collapsible glass wall on the exterior of the courtyard may only be moved by trained maintenance staff and cannot be moved by any other individuals. Be sure to include your preferences on these three walls ahead of time so they can be set in place before your event.
