Posted on September 09, 2021 in: General News

Parking for PREP
PLEASE USE CAUTION! PREP classes begin next Sunday, September 19th. We will be observing a staggered dismissal again this year with dismissal beginning at 10:10am. Please observe caution when entering the parking lots. Parishioners attending the 10:30am Mass who arrive before 10:25 AM should refrain from parking in the alley (from the Penn Street entrance to the flag pole) so that parents can use the alley to pick up students at PREP dismissal. Orange cones will be out to remind you of parking restrictions. Thank you for helping to keep our kids safe.
