An email scam has surfaced again in the Archdiocese. The scam email
purports to be from your parish priest, who is asking for money or gift cards because of some urgent need; for example, to help someone in hospital.
Please be assured that no priest of the Archdiocese would ever legitimately ask for money in this way.
We encourage you to report such incidents to the
Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and delete the email message.
