ANNUNCIATION FACILITIES FEE FOR SACRAMENTS
There is a $400.00 usage fee for the church facilities that must be paid in full at the time of reserving the church for sacraments such as baptisms and weddings.
Recognizing that parishioners in good standing are already contributing to the upkeep of the facilities, stewardship contributions of that year will be applied towards the usage fee. For example, if a family wishing to baptize their child has paid $300 in stewardship in the year of the baptism, that $300 will be credited toward the usage fee, and they will only have to pay an additional $100. If the person having the sacrament has not paid their stewardship during the year of the sacrament, they will be charged the full $400. Additionally, as a courtesy, they will then be considered to be a member in good standing for that year.
The stewardship status of any other family member (for example a sibling, parent, grandparent, or cousin of the bride or groom booking a wedding) does not apply towards the usage fee of the parties using the church for the sacrament.
FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLERGY EXPENSES
If an Orthodox clergyman (hierarch, priest or deacon), other than the Proistamenos or assigned substitute priest, is invited by the family to officiate at their sacrament, any expenses associated with the invited clergyman’s officiating (such as airfare, auto rental, hotel expenses and honorarium) are the financial responsibility of the family scheduling the sacrament.
