Our Center for Education and Ministry, 35 Essex St. (across from the church) opened in 2006 and is the center of non-liturgical activity for the parish. With 15 classrooms, several conference rooms and offices and a large gathering hall with commercial kitchen this beautiful building is a beehive of activity. During the school year, our Religious Education students gather 3 days a week for classes and our 30+ ministries make great use of it the rest of the time for a host of meetings and events.
To reserve a room or area in the Center for Education and Ministry for a ministry meeting, please email the front desk or fill out the facilities use request form and bring it or mail it to the parish office. Include in your request the date and time of the meeting, the name of the ministry and purpose of the meeting, an estimated number of attendees, the name and contact information of the person responsible for the meeting. Availability of our facilities can be checked on the parish calendar.
The kitchen and common gathering space are available for all parishioners to use for parish related events. We follow the Town of Andover guidelines regarding food service and policy. Please contact the office at 978 475-0050 if you have questions regarding this policy.
Per approval of the pastor and based on availability, the main gathering hall of the parish center may be reserved for private events, for which the suggested donation is $75/hour. Please call the office for further information. A facilities use request form must be submitted along with a signed copy of the building usage agreement form.
