Scam Emails to Parishioners – the Archdiocese received two reports this week about email scammers targeting our parishioners once again. These emails look like they come from a pastor, because the scammers have created fake Gmail accounts in the pastor’s name. Typically, they ask the recipient to purchase gift cards for someone in need. Please be assured that our priests NEVER email their parishioners to ask for money or gift cards out of the blue. If you receive such an email, we encourage you to report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (online or at 1-888-495-8501).

Snow Removal – Volunteers needed to assist with snow removal at Holy Name Church. Please sign-up in the foyer. Thank you!
