Parking Lot Services

Parking lot services will begin at 4pm.

On certain Sundays and Feasts, in addition to our livestream services, you are invited to join us in the parking lot of Jackson Park Elementary School in University City. The service of Holy Eucharist will happen live in the parking lot and the sound will be broadcast to you from within the comfort and safety of your car via your FM radio station. We keep the service short (30-40 mins), to make sure we are conscious of resource usage.

You can also bring a portable FM radio with you, and sit in lawn chairs or on your bicycle. If you are outside of a car, we ask that you remain masked.

For communion, prepackaged and sanitized bags containing consecrated wafers will be brought to your car window by clergy who will be wearing masks and using hand sanitizer.

In order to maintain social distancing, and to enable contact tracing, we require everyone to register. Please do so using the link below. Limited spaces are available, so please register early.

We will announce 2021 Parking Lot service dates soon.

Following our Guidelines for Gatherings, to keep us all safe:

  • Self-Monitor Symptoms: Please only attend this service if you are symptom free and fever free.
  • Distancing: If you do step out of your car, to sit on your tailgate or in lawn chairs, please do stay within your parking spot. As much as we wish we could greet one another, out of love for our neighbor we have to stay distanced. You are welcome to wave to one another!
  • Masks: If you step out of your car, or roll down your windows, please ensure all members of your household over age 2 are wearing a mask. Ushers have some masks available, if you forgot yours.
  • Singing: If you would like to sing, we ask that you stay in your car with the windows up.

Donations: We welcome donations to support the work of Holy Communion, whether a payment on a pledge or simply an offering. There will be large buckets available at the entrance to receive cash or checks. You can also make a gift online or by texting “GiveHoco” to 77977.
