What denomination are you and do the bride and groom need to be the same? One person (either the bride or groom) should be Catholic.
How many can fit in the church comfortably? The church can accommodate 650 wedding guests in the pews, plus there's a balcony.
Do you have a getting ready area? Two different rooms are available. There is a room in the lower level by the social hall called the Holy Family room with a long mirror close to the bathrooms which works well for the bride, and another room where the groom and attendants can get ready.
Do you provide an assistant for planning on the day of the wedding? No.
Does the couple need to have counseling before the ceremony? Yes, you'll need to meet with the priest before for counseling and to get the paperwork in order. So, it's best to make arrangements as soon as you've set a date or at least 6 months in advance of your wedding date.
Are there any time limits or other restrictions? It's best to book your wedding 6 months in advance. Most  weddings take place at 1:00pm.
Are you wheelchair accessible? Yes.
What kind of parking do you have? We have a  parking lot and street parking.
Do you have a rental fee? We have a rental fee of $75, with a gift for the priest in addition.
