Beware the scams!

From time to time many parishioners have received emails that they think come from our rector. These emails use her name and use various ploys and appeals to get you to respond by email. If you do respond, invariably they want you to send money (or now, sometimes Bitcoin), or they are trying to get some private information from you. Please look carefully at these emails and the email address from which they come. Our rector only has two email addresses, one from the church domain and one from Gmail and both use her name in some way. Anything else is a scam, Chris would not contact parishioners in this way. Please do not respond and if you have any doubts at all, send an email to one of her known email addresses or give her a call.

Thanks, and stay safe in all things.

Lent is a time for us to focus as much of our attention as one community as possible on who God is lifting us up to be, right here, right now. There are a range of ways you can help Lift Up Lent this year at St. Michael’s.
