5-3-20 Sunday Morning Mass with Fr. Alex Carmel St. Gabriel’s Parish, Lake Mills/Johnson Creek WI



 April 26, 2020 Mass

Dear Faithful of the diocese, we are still getting word that a number of email are being sent to you, attributed to Bishop Hying and/or a priest of the Diocese of Madison, asking that the recipient “email me as soon as you get this message” or to “buy gift cards” for the bishop or a priest. This is not how the bishop or the priests/parishes will ever approach you for assistance.

Sadly, predators are using this current crisis to take advantage of good and generous people. The bishop is sending no such email and neither are our priests. Any official Church email will come from a legitimate (and likely easily validated) email address and only ever link to official websites.
