Fr. de Rosa and other priests have been getting reports from parishioners that he is soliciting them via email for gift cards or financial assistance. Sometimes they seem urgent and say things like, “I am heading to the hospital and need your help for a sick person.”
These emails are phonies and are part of some sort of “phishing” or other cyber scam. They are NOT Fr. de Rosa’s email. His correct, public email is posted on the website and bulletin as firstname.lastname@example.org. If you get any such strange “requests” please inform our offices.
