Q: Can we register a table?

A: Yes! Each couple can register in one of two ways: 1) as a couple or 2) as a table. Tables seat 10 people/5 couples. You’re welcome to invite a priest. An 11th seat will be added to your table.


Q: What is the difference if I register as a couple versus a table?

A: If you register as a couple, when you arrive you will receive name tags and name cards. The name tags are your tickets into the event. The name cards can be placed at any open seats to reserve your seats for the evening. Seating is “first come, first serve.”

If you register a table, a table will be reserved for you. When you arrive, you will pick up your name tags, which are your tickets into the event, and name cards. You will be given information how to find your reserved table. You may place your name cards at your seats at your reserved table.

Ushers will be available to assist everyone in finding either open seats to place their name card or to find their reserved table.


Q: How does seating work?
