After submitting your information, you will receive an email with the information you submitted for your records at the email address you provided. This email is NOT a confirmation that your request has been granted, simply a confirmation that we have received your information and that we will notify you when the event has been scheduled or if there is a conflict with the time or location you requested. This is why we ask for your email address as the first question.
We recommend that you take a look at the google calendar on our website before submitting a request to see if the space is available. You can access all of the church's events, both internal and public events, using the following link: http://sjbalameda.org/page/calendar2/
This does not guarantee that the space is available as there may be requests submitted before you that have not made it up to the calendar yet. If something is scheduled, you may need to consider a different facility or different time for your event. We have many facilities available at the church.
We also recommend using the above referenced calendar link after you have made the request, to make sure your event is scheduled properly. Setup times and clean up times will not show on this calendar unless your setup time required is more than a few hours.
If you have any questions about this process, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 510-995-9420.
