Recently I went to a party celebrating Dixie Thompson’s years of teaching at Our Saviour School, and it reminded me that the Old Rectory is a great option for bridal showers and other small events.
The Old Rectory used to house Our Saviour’s Church staff, and is located at 462 E. State St., Jacksonville, IL 62650. Phone 217.479.8833 or 217.245.8767 or 217.245.2707. The restored and historic building has several large rooms downstairs and a kitchen perfect for catering.
We’ve photographed several weddings at Our Saviour Catholic Church who used the Old Rectory as a place to get ready before the ceremony. It’s a nice resource and can be used for small parties, too.
