TO: All Parish and School Staff
FROM: Don Genotti – Director of Finance & Controller
Due to the current environment and the impacts of the supply chain on the Sacred Heart Major Seminary Food Service Program, it was necessary for the Archdiocese to adjust meal prices accordingly, in an effort to contain costs and simplify the overall pricing structure. Please see the current meal pricing, identification, and payment process below.
SPECIAL NOTE: Until further notice, guests are not allowed to go through the cafeteria line or eat in the refectory dining area. However, guests are allowed to host meetings in one of the meeting rooms (i.e., Cardinal Mooney Parlor, Bishop Gallagher Parlor, Cardinal Dearden Porch, Gymnasium, Cardinal Maida Boardroom, St. Martha Dining Room, St. Thomas Moore Dining Room), and order off the catering menu to have food brought to the meeting room.
Effective September 7, 2021, the Sacred Heart Major Seminary (SHMS) Cafeteria meal pricing policy is as follows:
- All priests and Religious Men and Women (Religious) who do not live or work at SHMS will be charged a discounted price of $6.00 per meal for any meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), if they are wearing their Roman collar/habit or have identification clarifying they are a priest or Religious.
- All lay men and women who do not work at SHMS or the Archdiocesan Curia Office will be charged $7.75 per meal for any meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
If you intend to submit your meal cost for reimbursement, you may request a receipt from the cashier.
There is also a la carte pricing for the following items if you wish to purchase any of these without paying for a full meal:
|A la Carte Item||Price|
|'Hand' fruit (apple, orange, banana, etc.)||$0.50|
|Yogurt or Ice Cream Cup||$1.00|
|Cup of Soup||$1.50|
|Lunch or Dinner Dessert||$2.00|
|Side Salad (one trip to Salad Bar on 5" plate or a small to-go box)||$3.00|
Identification Process for Payment:
A new point-of sale system, Meal Magic, has been implemented to track meal counts and pricing. Please inform the cashier that you are a guest.
PLEASE NOTE: Priests/Religious who are not wearing a Roman collar/habit and/or do not have identification clarifying they are a Priest/Religious will be charged $7.75. Please do not request an exception to this process in the cafeteria line, as this process allows Chartwells staff to identify Priests/Religious for discounted meal pricing.
Effective September 7, 2021, the SHMS cafeteria accepts payment via credit card or check made payable to “Archdiocese of Detroit”. Cash is no longer accepted. If you will be submitting your meal cost for reimbursement, you may request a receipt from the cashier.
Use of Meal Tickets:
Meal tickets are no longer accepted. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Fran Ashe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
