Stephen C. O’Connell Center Venue Accommodations

There is seating for people who are in wheelchairs or who have limited mobility. Upon entering the facility, ask an usher to direct you to those areas. Due to limited space, we ask that only one family member sit with an individual; the rest of your party should sit in nearby spaces. Limited mobility seating areas are first come, first served and cannot be reserved. Wheelchairs are available to assist people to seating areas, but not to use for the duration of the ceremony.
