Cancellation Policy – Please be aware of our policies regarding cancellations as follows: It sometimes becomes necessary for the Diocese to cancel a scheduled event due to low numbers, weather, or other extenuating circumstances. Please note that every attempt possible will be made to notify you of this cancellation. If the diocese does cancel an event, all fees will be fully reimbursed. Due to overwhelming demand and the need for advance planning, we require a definite commitment from participants. Therefore, all payments are nonrefundable. Failure to pay by the requested date will result in a forfeiture of your spots so we can accommodate, to the best of our abilities, any over-flow. Please be aware that these policies are in place so that we may be as fair as possible to all groups and so that we may prepare adequately for the participants who are able to attend.
