Parking During Construction
Groundbreaking

Although we have only lost 8 parking spaces these spaces are closest to the church and were mostly used by our older parishioners.   Due to the kindness of CenturyLink their parking spaces are now available to us. Those parking spaces are noted on the map which is available by clicking here.

In order to balance the flow of entry into the and out of the church, it is suggested that all parishioners parking in the main parking lot from the school to the side of the church, use the entrance to the church from the parking lot closest to Canton Avenue (not going through the courtyard).  This will reduce the backup when leaving and it will also help to balance the congregation for our liturgies.  Thanks for your generous assistance in making the best of our difficult situation.

Bathrooms During Construction

We will not have access to the bathrooms in the back of the church during Construction..  They will be upgraded and additional family bathrooms are provided as part of this renovation. 

During construction, the closest bathrooms will be available in the Family Life Center at the end of the hallway which leads to the Nursery.  This doorway will be open before during and after all Masses.  The best seating in the church to most quickly access these bathrooms is at the entrance closest to the Park Avenue courtyard side entrance..
