Renting Zwisler Hall
The renovation of Zwisler Hall has created a beautiful multi-use facility that is suited to a wide range of uses including parties, wedding receptions, theatrical presentations, reunions or business meetings. The hall provides a full kitchen for any catering or in-house food preparation need. Zwisler Hall is open to the public and can be reserved by any parishioner or non-parishioner.
The Hall features a state of the art commercial kitchen. At maximum capacity our hall can be set with 37 round tables seating 8 persons each, for a total of 296 seats. If rectangular tables are preferred the hall will hold 7 rows of 5 tables each for a total 280 seats. Recommended wedding setup is 32 round tables seating 256 without a dance floor, and 28 round tables seating 224 with a dance floor. If a performance or meeting using chairs alone is needed, our hall will hold 500 chairs.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and in accordance with directives from the Diocese of Cleveland, we are currently only booking wedding receptions and funeral luncheons at this time.
