Scams Impersonating Fr. Chuck

Recently, parishioners have received texts from someone claiming to be Fr. Chuck and asking for money or gift cards to help. The text claims to be urgent, spurring a fast response in the recipient.

Please know that Fr. Chuck would never (never never) text anyone asking for such help. If you receive a text scam, please contact the Parish Office immediately. A screenshot of the text is also helpful.
