Scam Alert!

Several people are receiving Social Media or Email messages that seem to come from Fr. Matt. These messages are from scammers. Fr. Matt will NEVER send you a text or email stating that he needs your assistance or gift cards. If you receive a text or email from Fr. Matt or any priest and are unclear if it is from them, please call the Parish Office at (573) 635 – 6143 to confirm that the information is correct. NEVER respond to such texts, messages, or emails as this simply confirms to the scammer that they have reached a live person. It is best to just block the sender and delete the text or email. Please make sure any email address is Father Matts’s, or any other priest’s, exact diocesan email which can be found on each Parish’s Website.

If you have been the victim of a scam, please visit the Federal Trade Commision:…/avoiding-and-reporting-gift…. This site has important information on how to avoid the scam, report the scam and possibly get your money back.

If you have any questions please call the Parish Office at (573) 635 – 6143.
