Beware of Phishing Emails and Texts
Please beware of any emails or text messages you may receive purportedly from Fr. John, asking for a favor, or money, or such. Although the email or text may look like it is coming from Fr John, we can assure you it is not. It is a scam that is going around trying to fool people into sending money to con artists. If you do send money to them (or Apple gift cards, or Western Union Moneygrams) you will lose that money forever, (and Fr John will not get any of it.)
