Our St. James the Apostle facilities are utilized throughout the year for a myriad of events hosted by our parish ministries, as well as a few community ministries which have been pre-approved by our Parish Council. We do not rent our facilities, nor do we rent our tables and chairs for usage.

Parish ministries and pre-approved community ministries may use the forms below to schedule, change or provide setup needs for an event. Please complete and submit the appropriate form needed to our Communications Coordinator, Lisa Gilligan, at the Ministry Center or return via email to lisa@stjamesge.org. Requests will be processed within 2-3 business days and requests are not approved until confirmation is received from Lisa Gilligan.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION for Fall 2021: At this time we are processing facility usage requests for Tuesday, September 7 to Friday, December 31, 2021. We will open facility usage requests for January 1 to June 30, 2022 later this fall. Updates will be posted on this website.

For all parish and community ministries, the following diocesan COVID directives for the usage of facilities remain in place (subject to change):

  1. All facilities must be sanitized after usage.
  2. All unvaccinated persons must wear a mask while indoors.

Therefore, based upon these current protocols, we ask the following of you:

  1. Please wipe down any chairs and tables used at your event after it is completed.
  2. Please refrain from offering any food hospitality at your indoor meetings. By its nature, consuming food together requires all people to remove their masks indoors for a length of time, regardless of their vaccination status (which we cannot inquire about), within close proximity to one another. As such, we will not yet resume hosting these types of food hospitality events indoors. We will reassess this decision as the year progresses and inform you when it changes.
