IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM FR. JOHN GABRIEL

Recently, we have received notification of email and text scams that will use the name of a pastor to solicit funds in the form of gift cards or cash donations. The email usually includes no recipients’ name, and asks for financial help for a worthy cause. The pastor’s name concludes the requests.

Law enforcement agencies urge parishioners to question any email or text that doesn’t come from a person in their contacts. If a pastor’s name is used, parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of the appeal.

Please note: No priest or staff member will ever solicit funds in this manner.

welcome to the On Line portion of the Parish Community of St. Paul in Ramsey, NJ. It is our hope that the information you gather from these pages will enable you to know better who we are as a parish community and how we work to proclaim the Lord Jesus in our midst.
