Our building, a signature piece by regionally celebrated architect Frank Furness, is a designated historic landmark. Below is information on our rentable spaces, including accessibility information:
The Sanctuary seats over 500, yet, owing to its unusual design, is an intimate setting for much smaller gatherings. It is graced with rich colors, as well as a Casavant Freres organ and Steinway grand piano. The Sanctuary is located on the first floor and is an accessible space.
The Chapel, a jewel of stained glass and carved wood, seats 50; there is a Baldwin upright piano in the chapel loft. The Chapel is located on the first floor and is an accessible space.
The Parish Room, a sunny Victorian parlor, accommodates small to mid-sized receptions. This room is also located on the first floor and is an accessible space.
Griffin Hall, our social hall located downstairs next to an industrial kitchen, can comfortably seat 150 and can be arranged for elegant dinners, community meetings, concerts, or dance parties. Griffin Hall is not accessible at this time.
