Email Scam - Email pretending to be from Father Mike:

Please disregard and DELETE any email that seems to be coming from Father Mike which is asking for a reply because he needs assistance.  There is an email scam out there from an address that states that Father Mike is asking for money and to reply.  THIS IS A SCAM!  Father will never send e-mails asking you for money.  Please DELETE any email like that, and NEVER click on any links in them.

Thank you,
SLF
