General Information

The Pasquerilla Spiritual Center-Eisenhower Chapel has been the site of many beautiful ceremonies over the years. Services of all sizes, traditions, and faiths are welcome and can be accommodated in the large Worship Hall in the Spiritual Center or in a smaller, more intimate setting in the Eisenhower All-Faith Chapel or Meditation Chapel. Our experienced and dedicated staff handles many ceremonies each year and is available to assist and guide you in the planning of your special day.

Rehearsals

On the day before the ceremony, one hour is scheduled for each rehearsal. A Wedding Facilitator, when available, will assist the couple with their special day.

Since a variety of programs, events, and services occur in the facility, including rehearsals that run every hour, it is important that the couple, officiate, and individuals involved in the ceremony arrive on time. If a rehearsal begins late, the time allotted must be reduced by that amount. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us assist you in using your time and space within the facility as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Accompanists

This list includes individuals who have been approved to play the organ in the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center-Eisenhower Chapel as well as approved pianists. Fees may vary and are the responsibility of the group requesting the organist/pianist.
