Accommodation Policy

St. Xenia Parish, on rare and sundry occasions, makes use of space in the basement for meetings or small group gatherings. If for any reason, at any given time, this presents an obstacle or burden upon any senior, person with a disability, or other person for any reason, please do not hesitate to send and email to the parish warden. The parish warden will in turn reposition the meeting to the main floor, either to the nave or to the newly apportioned meeting room on the south side of the church, whichever works best for all concerned.

Thank you for your attention.
