Special Event Insurance
Special Event Insurance is available for purchase by outside organizations and individuals utilizing parish / school facilities for a onetime event when the individual or organization does not have or does not have sufficient General Liability Insurance. Examples of this would include wedding receptions, Quinceañeras, annual meetings, fundraisers, etc.
The coverage provided is fairly comprehensive for most events and includes host liquor liability. If the individuals or organization are “selling” alcohol, a permit may be required.
Individuals or organizations should go directly to the insurance website, enter the details of the event, and pay the premiums. They will receive a certificate of insurance once the payment has been processed. Parishes and schools should ask them for this certificate and attach a copy to the Facility Use Agreement for the parish.
How it Works:
• Go to the website https://eventus.ajgrms.com and click on “Quick Quote”
• Select “Texas” for the state, then “Catholic Diocese of Dallas”. They will then select the appropriate parish/school location
The system will take them through the quoting and purchase process. They can pay for events with checks and credit cards upon completion of transaction; they will receive via email, a Binder/Certificate evidencing coverage.
