Catholic Gators Student Leaders

Weekly Update - March 21, 2016

Hey Student Leaders!

Happy Holy Week! I can't believe Easter is already almost upon us!

Speaking of Holy Week and everyone's favorite subject (parking), I have an important request. Times and info for Triduum are below, but please note that we don't have any more parking than we normally do during the week for Triduum, and there tend to be a lot of people who come! If you plan on attending (and I hope you do, because it's awesome!) and driving to get here, please plan ahead: Get here early; carpool as much as possible. If you can, please park at the O'Connell Center or use street parking - it would be nice to leave the lot available for people who don't come here all the time and aren't as familiar with the area!

Also! After Easter Vigil we have the epic Easter Feast on the lawn outside the Church! All are invited. Please consider bringing something for the feast. Use this signup: (Note: If clicking on the link just takes you to the signup genius home page, please copy and paste the link from here to get the specific Easter Feast signup).
