The Friends of the St. Lawrence Church has an active board of directors (see About section for list of Board members), and three full-time staff members. Starting at its creation in 1996, the organization raised $1.5 million and renovated half of the building, opening the 110-seat Parish Hall Theater in May, 2001 (Phase I). The St. Lawrence manages the theater house and rents the facility to artists and production companies. The yearly operating budget of approximately $140,000 is supported fully by revenues from the theater operation and unrestricted fundraising (annual fund, etc.).
