Policy / Procedures / Marketing

Ministry & Parish Organization leaders should be familiar with how to operate in conjunction with our parish office staff in setting up events on our parish calendar and reserving rooms on our parish campus.


The calendar in which all meetings and events are scheduled on the St. Brendan Campus for Liturgical, Faith Formation, School, and the St. Brendan Parish Ministries. Room reservations are scheduled based on a first come, first-serve basis, provided that any additional requirements and/or fees have been fulfilled. If there should be a conflict between 2 or more groups for a specific space on a certain date, the groups’ priority is listed below:

  • Church: Liturgical and Parish events
  • Faith Formation: Religious Education, Sacramental Preparation, and Special Events
  • School: School Events (i.e. Musicals, Parent/Teacher Conferences, etc.) School Programs (i.e. Math Club, etc.), Open House etc.
  • Ministries: All other Parish Ministries
    a. All requirements/fees (if applicable) must be satisfied before reservations are approved for scheduling.


To schedule a room on campus, use must use the online Room Reservation Request Form located at the bottom of the any page on the church website at www.stbrendans.net. The reservation request will be submitted to the administrative office for approval. For Parish-wide events (which includes attendance from the entire Parish), please first present your idea to the Director of Missionary Discipleship for planning and support for your event.

  • Resources – Any items required for an event should be requested at the time the room reservation request form is submitted. (i.e. microphones, PIN Code for pantry, AV Equipment, podium, etc.)
  • Door Schedule – The door schedule you prefer for your event should be requested on the Room Reservation Request Form. The door schedule is based on the set-up time + the event time + the clean-up time.  Someone in charge of the event must be on-site when the door schedule is in effect so that the space is not left unlocked and unattended.  Specific door access can be requested on the room reservation request form but must meet the approval of the administrative office, Teresa Boyne, who ensures the appropriate doors are used for each event.
  • Badge Access – An accessible badge may be issued to a Leader or Auxiliary Leader of a Ministry/Organization depending on the nature of the event. Badges are issued by the Teresa Boyne, of the Administrative Office.  A request for an accessible badge must be submitted with the room reservation request form, no less than 5 days prior to the event
  • PIN Code – a unique number assigned to the Leader of a Ministry/Organization or an Event for the use of dry goods and or AV equipment in the Davidson Rd. Meeting Hall.
      • Liturgical PIN – assigned for parish special events.
      • Ministry PIN – For those ministries who have paid the consumable fees, the ministry will be issued a annual PIN Code at the time the group’s calendar events have been approved for the calendar.
      • Single Use PIN – a one off meeting or special event requested by a ministry.
  • Room Set-Up Request (if applicable) – a custom room set up can be requested when submitting a room reservation request by a Ministry/Organization. If a custom setup is not requested the room will be set up in the default setting.  See manual in room for default room setting details.
  • Room Cancellation – If an event needs to be cancelled from the Parish calendar, the following policies are now in effect:
    • If an event must be canceled during the week (Monday through Friday), the Parish Office must be notified by no later than 11 AM, the same day of the event.
    • If an event must be canceled for a weekend (Saturday & Sunday) event, the Parish Office must be notified no later than Friday at 11 AM.
  • If an event is cancelled and the Parish Office has not been notified, there may be a fee charged to the Ministry/Organization for overtime incurred by the Parish if a Parish Staff Member is scheduled to work for that specific event, outside his/her normal work hours.

The Parish Office and school administrative staff are jointly responsible for the safety and access management for the St Brendan Parish campus.

Keys and Electronic Access

  • For the purpose of these guidelines, the term “access devices” refers to keys, electronic fobs, badges, pin codes, etc.
  • All access devices are the sole property of St Brendan the Navigator Parish.
  • Access devices for the entire St Brendan campus are distributed, tracked, and maintained at the Parish Office.
  • The Parish Office will be open for access management tasks Monday through Thursday from 9AM-4PM (closed 12-1 for lunch) and on Friday from 9AM-Noon.
  • Both permanent and temporary authorization for an access device is granted by the following individuals: Pastor, Parochial Vicar, Business Manager, School Principal, Administrative Services Coordinator
  • The distribution of access devices is based upon required access privileges.
  • All distributed access devices must be returned at the expiration of the service term, completion of project/event, or end of employment.

School Faculty and Staff – Issuance of Access Devices and Equipment
St Brendan School faculty and staff are issued access devices, laptops, etc. for the duration of the school year. At the end of each school year, all school employees not scheduled during the summer recess must return their access devices and all assigned equipment (computer, laptop, etc.) to the Parish Office.Access devices and equipment are reissued at the beginning of each school year.

Loaning Access Devices
Any person issued an access device may not loan or transfer the assigned device to another party.

Lost Access Devices
Loss of assigned access devices by employees and parishioners exposes St Brendan parish to considerable financial and security risks.  Therefore, those individuals given access devices must exercise great care to ensure that the issued devices are in their control at all times.

  • All lost or stolen access devices must be reported to the Parish Office within 24 hours (614.876.1272 ext. 222 or via email parish@stbrendans.net. Based on the factors involved, the Business Manager will make a decision whether or not to replace the access device or have the lock rekeyed or replaced.  Costs incurred by replacement may be charged to the individual or to the individual’s department or organization.
  • If an individual or group loses an access device more than one time, there will be a fine levied (up to a maximum of $200) against the individual or organization.  If an employee loses the access device the fine will be payroll deduction.  By signing this document, you are giving permission to withhold, as a payroll deduction, any fine charged for any lost access devices.

School Entry and Exit
All parties (except for designated individuals) entering the school during office hours (Monday through Friday 7:30AM-4PM) must enter through the main school entrance and immediately proceed to the school office for clearance by means of a driver’s license/ID scanning procedure.  Parties who have completed the Safe Environment Program requirement and who have a photo badge must still complete the scan.  The driver’s license/ID scan provides school administration with an immediate response as to whether or not the entering party is a registered sex offender. This procedure provides an additional layer of security for our students.

  • The School Secretary or designee has the responsibility for screening and granting access to school building entrants.
  • If the results of the driver’s license/ID scan disqualify a person from school entry, the individual will be discreetly notified and school administration will take appropriate action to protect this confidential information.
  • If the entering party is given clearance, a temporary badge/sticker is provided and entry to the school granted.
  • The temporary badge must be visibly worn on outer clothing and collected by the School Secretary or designee at the end of the visit.
  • If a party does not present a driver’s license/ID, entry to the school will be denied.
  • All those leaving the school during office hours must stop by the School Office before exiting.

School Access for Visitors and Guests

If a faculty/staff member is expecting a visitor, it is appreciated if the School Secretary is notified.  All school visitors will be required to complete the driver’s license/ID scan prior to entry beyond the school office.  On occasion, a faculty or staff member may be asked to escort the visitor beyond the school office area.

Parish Access Management
Designated Parish Office staff members will have the responsibility to:

  • Establish and maintain keying and security systems for the purpose of safety and reasonable access.
  • Maintain centralized access device control records with the Business Manager granting final approval for access device issuance.
  • Procure and issue access devices.
  • Securely store all unassigned access devices.
  • Activate and deactivate access devices as required.
  • Manage the electronic access systems for the campus.

If an access request is approved, the access device must be obtained in person from the Parish Office.  Children will not be permitted to accept access devices on behalf of their parents. It is understood that loaned access devices MUST be returned to the Parish Office by the specified date and to facilitate the return the device may be placed in the secure mailbox at the Parish Office entrance.  The device should be placed in an envelope noting the name of the person or organization returning the access device.  It is also understood that access devices will not be duplicated, loaned or made available to others.

General Rules Related to Access
The holder of an access device (whether temporary or permanent) for any parish area assumes responsibility for the safekeeping of the device and its use.

  • Individuals with access privileges may not utilize parish spaces for personal activities.  All usage must be for parish or school sanctioned events/meetings.
  • The school entrance for Kids Zone (before and after school childcare program) is only for parents dropping off or picking up their children.  It is not to be used as an entry point for people attending meetings or events in the school.
  • School doors, with the exception of the playground doors, are used for emergency exits and alarmed at all times.
  • Exterior doors may not be propped open for any reason which may allow unauthorized access.
  • Ministry/event leaders should take measures to prevent piggybacking entries
  • It is essential that all doors are securely locked after departure.

In the school, it is essential that parish faculty and staff members should ask individuals without an issued badge, either temporary or permanent, to accompany them to the School Office for clearance.  If there is any resistance or behavior of a threatening or suspicious nature encountered, the School Principal, Business Manager, or designee will immediately be contacted and a 911 call generated. Violation of any of the requirements in these guidelines may result in suitable corrective action, up to and including loss of access privileges, civil and criminal prosecution and termination of employment (if the party is an employee).

The Pastor or Business Manager reserves the right to request the return of an access device at any time.

In an ongoing effort to protect children, St Brendan Parish has a Code of Conduct for all parishioners and volunteers.  Our expectation is that all those who come in contact with children and youths follow this Code of Conduct. All adult volunteers who will be working around children must fill out a Code of Conduct form and return it to the parish office.

If you have any questions, please contact the parish office. Thank you.

A fundamental goal of the Catholic Church is to prevent occurrences of sexual abuse of children. Therefore, the Safe Environment Program offers detailed policies and procedures designed to protect children while they are in the care, custody, or control of any person working on behalf of the Church. So, if you volunteer with children or youth at St. Brendan Church and School, you must fulfill these requirements:

  • Attend a Protecting God’s Children class.
  • Complete a background check with electronic fingerprinting
  • Obtain a volunteer badge, which must be worn while volunteering.
  • Fill out and return to the parish office a Code of Conduct form: Volunteer Code of Conduct Form

Protecting God’s Children Class

Who is required to take the class?

  • All parish, school and diocesan employees, regardless of their level of contact with children.
  • All clergy and applicants to clerical formation who serve in the Diocese.
  • All volunteers in the school, a school program or ministry for children and youth, regardless of their level of contact with children.
  • Volunteers for other parish programs or ministries who have been delegated care, custody or control of children.

All parish employees should also use ORC 2151.86.
School employees (non-teaching) should use ORC 3319.39B1.
Teachers use code ORC 3319.39B3.

Safe Environment Program Update

The Diocesan Safe Environment Program is the central repository of ALL background checks, both state (BCI&I) and federal (FBI). Therefore, all background check reports must be sent directly to the Diocesan Safe Environment Program office. ALL background reports will come from the the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) directly to the Diocesan Safe Environment Program. We will no longer be legally permitted to accept reports, or copies of reports, from parishes, schools, agencies, or individuals. The Diocesan Safe Environment Program’s address is: Safe Environment Program, Diocese of Columbus, 197 E. Gay Street, Columbus OH 43215

Those being newly entered into the Diocesan background check database will need to be handled in the following manner:

  • If a person has been fingerprinted within the last 30 days, that person can contact BCI&I and request a free copy of that report be sent to Diocesan Safe Environment Program.
  • If the most recent report was completed more than 30 days previously, but less than 12 months previously, the person may make a written request to BCI&I to have a copy sent to the Diocesan Safe Environment Program. There is a fee for this duplicate report.
  • If the most recent report for a new employee or volunteer is older than 12 months, the person will need a new background check. BCI&I does not provide copies of reports older than 12 months.

Questions on the processing of background reports? Contact Regina E. Quinn, Safe Environment Program, at rquinn@columbuscatholic.org or 614-241-2568.

Record Keeping

The Diocese receives and retains the background check results (both BCI&I and FBI) and Protecting God’s Children class attendance verification. This information is then made available to the individual parishes. Please note that criminal background reports are treated confidentially by both the Diocese and our parish. Individuals with no break in volunteer service and transferring between diocesan parishes can request that their information is transferred to St Brendan Parish.

Volunteer Badge

After St Brendan Parish receives verification that both the Protecting God’s Children class and the background check(s) have been successfully completed, the volunteer is then ready for a badge. Volunteers should contact the Parish Office (614.876.1272) to schedule a time for a photo badge. When you come in we will also ask you to complete a Volunteer Application and review the Code of Conduct. The volunteer badge should be worn when you are volunteering at parish and school events. Please note that we may need at least five business days to obtain your PGC class attendance verification and background screening results. So, if you are scheduled to volunteer for an event, school class, etc., please contact us at least five business days in advance.

  • Events that celebrate actions and rituals that are contrary to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church,
  • Events that support behavior that is contrary to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church,
  • Events that promote conduct, products, and activities that are contrary to the tenets and principles of the Roman Catholic Church,
  • Conduct that is not in keeping with civil laws and regulations, and
  • Conduct that offends Roman Catholic Church teachings regarding the sanctity of human life.The primary purpose of this sacred religious place is for use by Roman Catholic Church entities and organizations.  However, in the spirit of service to our community and in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, we will consider a limited pre-approved use of our facilities by entities and organizations that are not a part of the Roman Catholic Church.  These groups must agree that they will respect the sacred religious nature of our facilities and will abide by the guidelines set forth herein.St Brendan Parish rents parish facilities for social events that are connected to a sacramental celebration (i.e., baptism, confirmation, or rehearsal dinners and wedding celebrations) and this is only when the sacrament is held at St Brendan Parish.  Other private events will typically not be scheduled for our facilities.All groups scheduling use of our space (example: Red Cross) will be required to sign this Agreement each time they book with us.  The group representative, not the parish contact, will be required to sign the Agreement.All requests for space rental or use for non-parish/school and non-Diocesan events will be reviewed and approved by our Pastor, Fr Sean Dooley, Business Manager, Tom Kollar (tkollar@stbrendans.net), or their designee.

Smoke Free Campus

Effective Earth day, April 22, 2016, St Brendan became a smoke-free campus.

Since that day smoking is prohibited, including the use of all tobacco products, and the use of electronic smoking devices (also known as electronic cigarettes or “e-cigarettes”) at St Brendan the Navigator parish. This includes all church and school buildings, anywhere on parish and school grounds, in parish-owned vehicles and in privately-owned vehicles parked on parish property.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a healthy environment that promotes the health, well-being, and safety of everyone.  Furthermore, it is also our intent to reduce any influence tobacco-use behavior may have on our students and young parishioners.

This policy applies to any individual on parish property, including, but not limited to, parishioners, staff, faculty, students, volunteers, visitors attending church events, contractors, subcontractors, and any members of the public, and is applicable twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week.

NOTE: Room reservations are for St Brendan Parish Ministries/Organizations.

St Brendan maintains a master calendar of all bookings for available campus meeting spaces. (See the Room Reservation Form below for all rooms we have available and room capacities.) The master calendar is maintained by the parish office staff with Dina Harder as the “keeper of the calendar” and all its content.  Therefore, all calendar scheduling should be directed to Dina Harder at dharder@stbrendans.net.

The majority of the space scheduling takes place in the spring each year when parish departments and ministries are contacted to submit their date/location requests for the upcoming year (July 1 through June 30). Parish liturgical events, Evangelization and Catechesis (MEC) programming/events and the school are given priority in scheduling spaces.  After those two groups are scheduled, the parish ministry and organization requests are added to the master calendar It is important that space scheduling requests are submitted according to the requested timeline to expedite this process.  Also, each scheduled meeting or event must have the name of the responsible party and his/her contact number attached to the reservation. After the master calendar is updated each department/group is sent a list confirming their scheduled dates/times for the upcoming year.

Parish activities may not be scheduled on the parish campus on holidays observed by the parish staff because there is no staff support on site.

  • New Year’s Day

Additions/Modifications to the Calendar throughout the Year
There will be many occasions throughout the year when there is new programming and/or events that must be added to the calendar. It is imperative that the person responsible for the event notifies the Receptionist (preferably via email…Dina Harder at dharder@stbrendans.net) of the space request with the proposed date/time and name of the new event. If a previously scheduled ministry or organization event will have to be moved from its time/space to accommodate the new event, it is our goal to try and find alternative spaces so each group may be accommodated.

It is also important to notify Dina, (614) 876-1272, Ext. 235, as soon as possible if your group will not be using the space when scheduled so that the space can be free for other groups. Also, if you have booked two locations for an event/meeting but actually will only use one space, please notify the Receptionist as soon as you can so we can free up the space and the bulletin listing (when applicable) notes the correct location. And, again, email communications regarding space are always preferred!

Facilities Assistance with Scheduled Events
If your group has scheduled an event that requires tables, chairs, and other equipment or resources that are kept in a secured area, you must request assistance from the Facilities Management team.  The Facilities staff members will be able to access the secured areas prior to the event and assist with replacing the items after the event has ended. To schedule the use of a Facilities staff member, please email your request to Dina Harder at dharder@stbrendans.net or to Tom Kollar, Business Manager, at tkollar@stbrendans.net.

It is important to notify the Parish Office as soon as possible after scheduling an event so we can reserve the equipment and resources needed for an event.  Also, we will need a minimum of two (2) weeks’ notice prior to the event if we are going to schedule a Facilities staff member to be on site outside of normal business hours to assist during an event.
