Parking space outside the church is a continuing problem. The priests are frequently unable to park their cars on the church forecourt or if they have been able to, they then find themselves blocked in and unable to get out. They need to be able to use their car any time, day and night to respond to calls from parishioners, hospitals or care homes.
This week Fr Steve was unable to park on the drive as a vehicle completely unknown to him was on the forecourt.
Parking is reserved for the priests and the staff who are employed by the parish.
