St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church
Community Center Facilities Rental/Leasing Fees
(Revised March 2, 2007)

Our Mission Statement is: "To spread the good news of Jesus Christ to all God's people by word and action." In order to accomplish our mission statement and to accommodate our more than 4,500 parish families and community, the prioritizing of orderly usage and the charging of fees in order to preserve the facilities and provide the necessary service support for each activity are as follows:

  • The priority of facilities usage shall be St. Mark Church Liturgy, Ministries, registered active parishioners,  and the Archdiocese.
  • All lessee's will pay 100% of the additional or extra charges as appropriate for their activity or function, which includes damage to the facility, utility fees, labor for setting up, monitoring and cleaning after the activity, security, paper supplies provided by the lessor and special staff that may be needed during the activity or function which may not be included in the original facility (building) or activity fee. These fees will be computed on an individual basis between the lessee and St. Mark during the initial request for facility.
  • All Archdiocese activities fees will be 60% or (negotiable by Rev. Msgr. Kevin E. Ryan, Pastor and Mrs. Dorothea G Hamlin, Pastoral Administrator), of the facility (building) usage and utility fee.

We will make every effort to ensure that your event is just right.
