Have you ever been to a wedding reception, office meeting, or other gathering and found yourself hungry in the middle of the event? Especially when planned during breakfast, lunch, or dinner hours, providing your guests with food and beverages is an important part to any social or professional gathering. As the second largest event center in the metropolitan Baltimore area, New Psalmist Retreat and Meeting Center (NPRMC) offers a variety of rooms, services, and amenities that are sure to provide the perfect setting for your next event. When you book your event in one of our party halls, ballrooms, or other rooms, you’ll have the option of providing your guests with world-class catering. If you’re undecided on catering for your next event, check out a few of the advantages of professional catering!

Time and Money Savings

Especially if you are hosting a larger crowd, buying all the ingredients for food and beverages can be downright expensive, not to mention the time you’d have to invest in prepping and the cooking the food. Chances are, if you’re responsible for planning an event, you have a lot on your plate. Shopping for and preparing food is the last thing you should have to worry about. Save your time, money, and sanity by letting us do the hard work for you!


In order to provide your guests with a large variety of food, chances are you’d have to buy a lot more food than will actually be consumed. Unless you’re a former chef or an expert in the food industry, providing your guests with multiple meal, drink, and snack options can be overwhelming. From continental breakfasts to soups and desserts, the catering staff at NPRMC specializes in providing a wide variety of catered food for guests in our party halls, lecture halls, and meeting rooms.

Food Safety

How terrible would it be if one of your guests came down with food poisoning or other foodborne illness because of improper food safety? When you’re in the middle of hosting an event, the last thing you want to worry about is making sure the crab dip stays cold and the roast beef stays hot. Our catering staff is here to ensure the comfort of your guests, including the safety of the food they consume while attending your gathering.

Professional Equipment

Whether you need a proper cake stand for your wedding reception, a high-capacity beverage station, or elegant tableware, chances are you won’t have professional catering equipment in your cupboards at home that are designed to serve a large group of people or keep a large quantity of food evenly heated for hours on end. Even if you did, it’s unlikely that your car is large enough to transport it all. NPRMC offers clean, elegant catering equipment for all party halls and rooms rented at our facility.

No Clean Up

Once the excitement of your big event is over, the last thing you want to worry about is packing up food and washing dishes. However, if you choose to prepare and bring your own food to your event, this is exactly what might happen. Choosing to enlist catering services will allow you to focus on saying goodbye to guests while leaving clean-up duty to someone else. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

In addition to quality catering, NPRMC offers valet parking, security, and audio/visual services! As always, we are happy to customize any of our services to meet your individual needs and requests. To learn more about our catering services and party halls, contact NPRMC today!
