Centrally located at the corner of Queen Mary Drive and Stewart Street, our facilities include a fully flexible, air conditioned and accessible main floor space for meetings, concerts or other events. Accessible washrooms and a wheelchair access ramp from Stewart Street is available for this space. Below grade, a main hall, two smaller meeting rooms, a kitchen and washrooms are available. At present there is no wheelchair access to the lower level, but we are looking at options for making this space more accessible.
We welcome inquiries about the use of our space for family or community events, small group meetings and community-based programs. Please contact the Parish Office for details.
