THE GREAT HALL
The focal point of the Center is The Great Hall with its warm atmosphere of light wood and glass. It is here that various events, large and small, take place — from intimate celebrations such as birthdays, baptisms, and First Communions to luncheons, banquets, receptions, lectures, concerts, and more.
MEETING AND CONFERENCE ROOMS
Surrounding The Great Hall are the dramatic foyer with a backlit glass centerpiece, three Conference Rooms of varying sizes, and the Toddler Center. The church's religious education program (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine) uses part of the Center on Wednesday afternoons during the school year as well as for some adult religious programs, and the Senior Program welcomes area seniors on two afternoons for a light luncheon or dessert, hobbies and crafts, and social activities.
The Conference Rooms are ideal for small-group interaction such as board meetings, strategy sessions, discussion groups, and a host of other possibilities.
The Great Hall and the Conference Rooms have audio, video, and CD capabilities. The entire Center is air conditioned for summer comfort, and is handicap-accessible via elevator from Lexington Avenue.
The Center has a modern kitchen prized by caterers for its functionality and proximity to The Great Hall.
Restrooms are located near the Garden Patio.
THE KATHRYN MARTIN THEATER
Adjoining the Center is an exquisite state-of-the-art Theater, named in honor of Miss Kathryn Martin, a generous benefactor and devoted parishioner whose life was given over to teaching and to fostering a love of music.
Though separately managed, the Theater and the Center can at times offer combined facilities for certain events.
