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 Summer/Fall 2022: At this time we are processing facility usage requests for July 1st to December 31st, 2022.

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

If there is to be any type of foodservice at an event, based upon current protocols, we ask the following of you:

  1. All food served should be either pre-packaged or pre-plated or served by a server such as in the case of a buffet line. So for instance, for donut service, you could pre-plate individual donuts for the taking or have a person serving them. 
  2. Condiments such as cream cheese or butter, ketchup or mustard or mayo, creamer, sugar, etc. should be pre-packaged.
  3. Anyone who is pre-packaging, pre-plating or serving food should wear gloves while doing so and utilize tongs when picking up food, when appropriate.
  4. Please note we have pre-packaged sets containing a fork, knife, spoon and napkin in the drawers labeled plastic spoons/knives/forks in the St. James Hall Kitchen for your use.
  5. Please make your guests aware of the hand sanitizer available in the room for usage.
