Weekly Update - February 14, 2016

The Parking Situation has Changed Again

Hello friends! Happy St. Valentine's Day / Feast of Sts. Cyril and Methodius / first Sunday of Lent / whatever else you may be celebrating on this day. Another Sunday brings another parking lot update (go figure) and this one is important: Starting tomorrow, we will no longer have the lot between 15th and 16th streets to park in. I don't know yet what the alternate plan for parking is, and I'll let you know as soon as I know! Please be attentive to email and Facebook for updates. Fr. Marek is hopeful that we will know in the next few days.


What does this mean for you?

  • For the next few days at least, there is no free parking available around here before 4pm. If you would like to be here before 4pm, please take the bus, walk, pay to park, use your scooter or bike, or talk to your friends who live nearby about the possibility of leaving a car at their place.
  • After 4pm, all the street parking is still available. Carpool as much as possible, please, and remember not to walk to your car alone at night if it's parked far away!


Thanks so much again for all your patience in all of this! I have been SO impressed with you all this week, and with the fact that you're not willing to let this little parking headache get in the way of Mission 10,000. If you have questions or concerns or suggestions, please let me know! You can reply to this email or text or call me (407.247.2894).
