We have been notified today by the Diocese that a popular scam targeting parishioners is making the rounds yet again. To ensure that we remain vigilant against such crimes, we warn our parishioners that the scammers are targeting anyone associated with a parish. They are trying to trick people into sending gift cards to the pastor via links in the email (most popularly ITunes gift cards). Never transfer funds or send gift cards to people requesting it online.  Always check with the church office first.
