The Pastoral Council has implemented new parking regulations.
1) No one is permitted to park in the Fire Zone at the entrance to the School.
2) The Handicap parking will be available in front of the school classrooms. You must have a Handicap permit.
3) Church parking permit will be granted for temporary emergences, i.e. surgery, illness, etc. See Father Bill for the permit.
4) Please consider coming to church 15 minutes before Mass begins as this will alleviate many problems.
5) Another request is that, if at all possible, please enter the lot by the rectory and not the field unless you will park at that end. We need to avoid cars going both ways at the top of the lot.
Again, coming early is the best solution to finding a place to park.
Volunteer parking attendants are still needed for the Sat. 5 PM and Sunday 11 AM Masses. This is a great opportunity for service hours. Please call the rectory if you can volunteer.
Volunteers should come 30 minutes before Mass.
