Using the dining room
St. Stephen’s is pleased to provide the use of its rooms at low cost for events that provide a benefit to our neighborhood, our city, and our world. For such events, we require reimbursement for any costs we incur for cleaning and security (and we have the final word about whether cleaning or security are required for any event). In addition, we request a donation for the use of space based upon a sliding scale, a minimum of $45 per hour.
St. Stephen’s also rents rooms for private parties such as wedding ceremonies and receptions, birthdays, and quinceñeras. The cost for this type of event is $95 per hour, plus security and cleaning. Please contact the church office directly to make arrangements for a private party.
