Some of your parishioners may be again receiving phishing e-mails or texts that appear to come from their pastor telling them: “[name of the parishioner] I need a favor from you. Text me back as soon as possible. [pastor’s name]” Please be aware of these scams, especially now as we try to stay connected electronically to the parish while Masses are suspended.
If you receive such a fraudulent email or texts, please contact your IT professional – do not respond to the email or text. Please share this information with staff members and volunteers.
