SYB greatly expanded our parking lot several years ago, but in those rare cases where the lot is full, we ask that when you park at Mary Queen of Peace you please leave the first 10 spots in each row for patrons of the church. The church allows us to park at the church with the understanding that we leave those spots open.  Please continue to demonstrate consideration for our neighbors.
