The practice of opening the gates on the 87th Ave. end of our main parking lot only for Masses on weekends will be resumed effective June 1st. The gates will be opened on Saturday afternoons to accommodate parishioners coming and going from Mass. They will be closed and locked after the final Sunday Mass.
Parishioners living north of the parking lot had re- quested that the gates be open for access to weekday as well as Sunday Masses. Unfortunately, the parking lot is being used as an unofficial right-of-way for traffic seek- ing to go north from 88th Ave. Increasingly, cars are speeding through the lot creating a serious hazard for people walking through the lot. Heavy trucks have been using it, providing wear and tear on the asphalt that has created dangerous potholes.
Due to these factors, the Parish Planning Council has recommended that we open the gates on the 87th Ave. end of the lot only on weekends. And we request all parishioners to use extreme caution when entering or exiting the lot.
