It has been suggested by the ushers and staff that using our main entry door instead of the South transept may allow more efficient seating of those waiting for a seat. It brings the trade-off of having people walk through the church to reach the front rows, but it will allow us to help curb people from standing in the transept and nave along the walls.
We'll try it and see. We are fortunate to have many ushers willing and able to help us welcome people efficiently and we thank them. Thank you for your patience and understanding. (It will also help us if you arrive a minute or two early for mass.)
