There is a scam going on throughout the country in which people receive texts, emails or other messages through social media, from someone identifying themself as the parish priest, indicating that the priest is in a situation in which he needs money right away. It is believed that the scammers are going through parish websites and online bulletins, and then texting, emailing or messaging parishioners whose contact information may be published in various ways as contacts for particular activities or events. Please note that Fr. Jack would never text, email, or use social media to ask a parishioner for emergency financial assistance. Any such requests should be ignored.
