Some Further Details:
ALL catered events must be coordinated by Ahern Catering, but lessees may bring their own food for other events such as parties, reunions, concerts, dances, etc.
St. Clarence and Ahern Catering have an exclusive contract which means that no other caterer can be used or permitted on premises at St. Clarence. Weddings must be catered by Ahern Catering who has complete access to our calendar. They have a full catering menu plus a menu for trays that can be dropped off for the event. The lessee may bring in their own food or have Ahern cater any other event, e.g., showers, graduations, First Communions, reunions, birthdays, etc.
