Any crafters out there?

Father Poli is asking for any parishioners who would like to sew cloth masks to donate for parishioners who may need one. It doesn't matter the style or design as long as it properly covers the mouth and nose.

You may drop off masks directly to Father Poli at the office or at church.

Thank you!

BEWARE-COVID-19 Scam Emails

This past weekend, a parishioner received an email claiming to be from Bishop Larry Silva requesting gift cards to help a priest with COVID-19. This is a scam email. DO NOT reply to the email, ignore and delete it.

Bishop Silva has reconfirmed that he will never send an email asking an individual for money, gift cards or any other gift. Hallmark signs of phishing and scam emails often include bad grammar, bad spelling, threats to do damage, and a short deadline to pay money with a link.

Below are some tips if you receive a phishing or scam email:

  • Don’t reply back to the sender. Doing so alerts the sender to the fact that this is a live email account.
  • Instead, call the alleged sender directly on their official phone line and ask if they sent the email.
  • Don’t click on any links in the email. Instead hover over a link to see the full web address and whether it might be coming from a suspicious site that could install malware on your computer or try and get your sensitive information like log-ins, personal data or financial details.
  • If you’d like to alert the diocese to the fact that an email pretending to be someone related to the church is circulating, you can forward it to: ithelpdesk@rcchawaii.org.
