Parking Update Regarding the Use of Madison Garage
Beginning Jan. 30, access to the Madison Building Garage (located next door to the church) on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings for regular weekend parish Masses will now require payment. Previously, parishioners attending Mass were allowed to park in the garage without charge for the duration of the Mass they attended.
Those who wish to continue parking in the Madison Building Garage while attending Mass will be able to do so at the discounted daily rate of $3.00 for the first hour, and $2.00 for any subsequent hours. Parishioners should take a ticket upon entry to the garage, then bring their ticket with them to Mass. At the end of the liturgy, our ushers will validate your ticket with a sticker, denoting the discounted rate when presented to the parking attendant at the garage exit. Failure to collect a ticket or validation will require those parking in the garage to pay the posted weekend rate of $20.00 per day.
On-street parking without charge remains available to parishioners within the City of Tampa’s “church zone” metered spaces for Sunday Masses. The zone is typically “north of E. Kennedy Blvd. and south of E. Cass St., east of N. Franklin St. and west of N. Morgan St.” Street spaces are enforced from the hours of 8 a.m. to midnight, Monday-Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. to midnight. These spaces are enforced on nights, weekends, and holidays. This zone only applies during the special hours on Sunday and not during the week or other special liturgical celebrations such as Ash Wednesday or Holy Thursday.
We are grateful to the Madison Building’s property management for the years of generosity to our parishioners.
