A Note from Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

In an environment where a lot of us rely on electronic communication outlets of many kinds, the benefit does not come without risk. Scammers are always looking for new and creative ways to illicit ill-gotten gains. I just want all of you to know that I will never send out an email solicitation for donations of any kind. Should you receive one please do not respond.

My email address is frbob@skdmail.org. Those that wish to do harm will try to mimic that address but cannot co-op it for their own use. Scammers try to make slight change to an email address in order to fool recipients. Please do not be fooled and as a matter of good practice do not respond to any email solicitation for gifts. All charitable organizations who are reputable have secure websites where donations are accepted.

Unfortunately there are corrupt scammers out there who are always looking for ways to rip people off and they can be very creative. Be alert. If there is any doubt regarding the veracity of an email you believe was sent by anyone at the parish please call the parish office 630-466-0303. We will be happy to assist you.
