In October 2016, the approved Parking Lot Policy and Guidelines of Our Lady of Sorrows were disseminated to parishioners and the community at large. We would like to inform everyone that we have now installed all the necessary signage and the Policy and Guidelines will be strictly enforced.
- The OLS Church parking lot is private property and is intended for the use of registered parishioners and/or visitors who are attending Mass or a parish function. Anyone else using the parking lot for any other reason will be asked to leave at the discretion of the parish office.
- Unauthorized VEHICLES in the Church parking lot will be TAGGED/TOWED at owner’s expense. A Warning Notice will be issued and the license plate of the vehicle will be recorded. Vehicles of repeat offenders will be tagged/towed at owner’s expense.
- Unauthorized VISITORS using the parking lot will be asked to remove themselves and/or their car from the lot.
- LOITERING in the church parking lot and on church grounds is strictly prohibited and those refusing to leave will be reported to the Toronto Police Service.
- ILLEGAL PARKING within the lot which blocks other cars will not be tolerated. Those parking in aisles or blocking the entrance or exit to the lot may be towed. This is a safety issue. A Warning Notice will be issued and the license plate of the vehicle will be recorded. Vehicles of repeat offenders will be tagged/towed at owner’s expense.
- The Parish Advisory Council along with the Pastor will be responsible for revisions to this POLICY.
- The parking lot must be clearly lit to help prevent inappropriate use of the lot.
- The parking lot must have clear signage to ensure use and restrictions are clearly posted.
- Repeat policy offenders will have their vehicles tagged/towed at owner’s expense.
- The parking lot policy will be issued in the bulletin, published on the church website and will be re-issued as needed to remind the parish community of the policy and guidelines.
The co-operation and adherence to the policy and guidelines by all parishioners and the community is appreciated.
