We have received numerous phone calls from parishioners who have received emails or text messages that appear to be from Msgr. Shamleffer or other rectory staff requesting you to contact them and possibly to purchase gift cards.  Please be aware that these requests are coming from scammers. The scammers create an email account using our pastor’s name and sending email or text messages. Priests, pastors, rectory and school staff will never email or text parishioners looking for gift cards and would never send a business email from a private account such as @aol.com or @gmail.com
