Be Aware

 

It has come to the attention of the Diocese of St. Petersburg that parishioners have been receiving text messages and emails asking for money and gift cards from people pretending to be our priests. Our priests and staff do not contact individuals via text message or social media to ask for money or personal information.

Do not reply to such text or social media messages and report them to your parish and the Diocese.
