Interesting. Your comment on the parking lot seems reasonable, but it just hasn’t happened here. Sure, there’s the crew that makes their mad dash to the car, but there are also those who stick for fellowship, be it coffee and donuts, Marian shop, pancake breakfast, tamales, or just yacking. Sometimes I have stayed thru a couple Mass cycles, depending on the conversation or whatever else I had planned for the day. Sometimes I leave right after Mass.
Cars come, cars go. Sometimes the lot fills and people park where they can. I have not ever experienced fellowship causing a significant problem. Am I missing your point? Why does the lot have to clear out entirely? I suppose space could be a premium. We don’t have acres and acres of parking, but other than Christmas and Easter, there isn’t anything significant that comes up.
