Our parish office has become aware that some people in our parish have been contacted by someone using texts messages pretending to be Father Rick. They were asking them to buy gift cards to support children with cancer. Please ignore and/or block the sender. In addition, I, nor the church would ask for financial assistance from any social media, especially through Instant Messenger. You would be aware of any request from the announcements at Mass or Parish bulletin.
I would not send a text or email in this manner. If something doesn’t seem right, please contact the parish office.
Blessings to you all,
