This year’s celebration will be in the Murphy Ballroom that is on Level 5 in Building B. Please follow the signs.
Note that Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, March 10.
Time: The doors will open at 12:00 pm. Please note that it will not be possible to reserve seats for your parish before the doors open. Once the doors have opened, you may reserve seats for your parish until 1:45 pm. After that time you will need you to release extra reserved seats. There will be 2 large screens, one on each side of the stage, which will allow everyone to have a good view of the proceedings. With this in mind, please enter the halls as reverently as you would enter your own home sanctuary.
Parking: Parking at the GWCC is abundant but will cost $16.95 per car. The Red Parking Deck is the most convenient and is located on Andrew Young International Blvd. Parking may be purchased in advance by going to GWCCParking.com, search for the event by date, then use the access code: RITE19. This option guarantees the cost. Parking may also be purchased on site but be aware that there is an Atlanta United game that begins at 5 PM so the cost of parking may increase as the deck fills.
Dropping off/picking up: The drop off and pick up point for the parish buses is on Andrew Young International Blvd just outside of Building B. Follow the Rite of Election signs to the Thomas Murphy Ballroom.
