Use of Parish Property
       We are blessed to have such a nice parcel of land for our parish.  We have beautiful green space and a large parking lot.  People are drawn to our property because it is well maintained and clean.
Lately, we have noticed that people are using the parish grounds as their private recreational area.  Please spread the word, the parish grounds are private property. Anyone wishing to use the field or parking lot, for whatever reason, must first get permission from the Parish Office.  The parish is put at great risk when unauthorized people decide to use the parking lot or field for their own use.  The Stratford Police have been notified to keep an eye on our property.
