CYBERCRIME is hitting dioceses nationwide. If you receive an email or text message from the pastor or any priest requesting you to purchase a gift card or transfer funds by wire, be forewarned, IT IS A SCAM. Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email or text.


All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx. It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.
