St. Joseph Hall

"Go, eat your bread with enjoyment, and drink your wine with a merry heart;
for God has already approved what you do"
(Eccl 9:7).


Blessed Mother Church is blessed to have one of the largest parish halls in the diocese. Our St. Joseph Hall, located in the Family Life Center next to the church, is often used for wedding receptions, dances, formal dinners, birthday parties, and other large gatherings.

It can seat 400 people with tables and chairs, or 750 people with chairs only. There is also a large kitchen and prep area where food can be stored, cooked, and prepared for any occasion.

For pictures of the hall, see our "Parish Hall" photo album! You may also schedule a time to come see the hall for yourself.


All reservations must be made with Russ Hayden (683-8444, ext. 21). Time for preparation and decorating cannot conflict with any scheduled parish liturgy, function, or meeting.

All reservations are confirmed upon receipt of deposit, which is half of the rental fee. Should the rental party cancel 3 or more months prior to the confirmed date, the booking deposit will be returned in full. Should the rental party cancel within 3 months of the confirmed date, the booking deposit will not be returned.

Your event must end by 1:00 AM.
