St. Mary’s Parish Center

 

The limited reopening of our Parish Center on March 1, 2021 is contingent upon following the protocols put forth by the St. Mary’s Covid Task Force who have examined the policies from the government, CDC, and Diocese among others, and has determined how to best apply them here at St. Mary’s to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19 for the safety of those on our campus.

The protocols outline the expectations of those present on our campus, as well as of the leaders for the corresponding organizations and departments who are responsible for ensuring these protocols are being followed.

Many of the rooms are opened at a limited capacity, though the Gymnasium remains closed at this time for Athletic Activities along with our Kitchen.

Reservations may be made starting on February 22, 2021. To utilize the Parish Center space and book a room reservation, please submit the Reservation Form below by dropping it off to the Parish Office side door mail slot, or returning by attachment via email to: rectory@stmaryswormville.org
