Parking Lot Etiquette
For everyone's safety, please do not park in Fire Lanes (marked by signs and yellow-painted curbs), or on the grass, or blocking the driveway for the rectory. It's especially important not to block the circle in front of the main entrance of the church to allow for emergency vehicles. Please obey all posted signs for speed limits, parking, and turns in our parking lot and on neighboring streets. Thank you!
Inclement Weather Policy (Just in case!)
