Emergencies

In case of a medical emergency or security concern, please call 911.  For after hours support, contact (937) 490-9203.

Purpose

The St. Charles PAC (Parish Activities Center) is for the primary use of St. Charles parish. Accommodations for diocesan entities such as Alter High School and other parishes will be granted provided PAC time is available.  St. Charles reserves the right to remove outside entities from the schedule to accommodate our own needs. PAC reservations for outside groups or organizations is prohibited. Availability is determined by the Office of the Business Manager, in conjunction with other parish schedules, for the benefit of the St. Charles parish community. Space must be reserved and approved in advance through our parish online calendar. Using the PAC without requesting time on our parish online calendar is considered to be trespassing even if a member of that group has keys to the building. Any group using our PAC must fully comply with the Archdiocesan Child Protection Program.  This includes appropriate adult-child and gender ratios.

Procedure

  1. Scheduling requests for use of the PAC facility must be approved through the parish Business Office (434-6081) or by requesting PAC time through our parish online calendar.  The PAC is generally available after school and on weekends until 10:00 pm.  The PAC is closed during the month of July for maintenance.
