We must never be discouraged or give way to anxiety...
but ever to have recourse to the adorable Heart of Jesus.
--St. Margaret Mary Alacoque--

A temporary parking space has opened up for us. The owner of the empty lot at the corner of Chatham and Park has graciously offered us the use of this space. We intend to use the lot only on Sundays. The entrance to the lot is along Park Boulevard. There are handouts available in the vestibule describing where the “parking stalls” are. The traffic in the lot moves counter-clockwise. The lot closes at 3pm on Sundays. Not knowing how long we have the use of the lot, let’s take advantage of the owner’s gracious gesture in the meantime.
