We have heard reports of some people receiving messages like the one below.
Neither Father Mike, nor any other staff member, will ever send emails or private messages to parishioners or members of the community to ask for money or any other thing. If you receive such a message, it is definitely fake.
If you have any questions, please call the church at 631-288-1423.
