A Prayer of Examen

The prayer of Examen, developed by Ignatius of Loyola (founder of the Jesuits) in the 1500s, is a practice of examining your day using a series of guiding questions. Regular practice can help us notice the presence and action of God in our daily lives, and deepen our compassion for ourselves and the people around us.

From the Diocese: Email Scams Continue

In the past month, there has been a significant amount of scam emails sent to church members in our diocese. We first received notice about this in July and unfortunately, some of our members are still being targeted.

Scammers trick you into giving them your money or your personal information. The scammers may appear to be legitimate and may even pose as a person or organization you are familiar with. Please exercise extreme caution with these emails.

If you have received an unusual email from a parish leader or the bishop’s office requesting gift cards or money it could be part of a scam.

If you think you may have received a scam email, we recommend the following:

  • Carefully check the sender’s name and email address
  • Look out for misspelled words and incorrect grammar
  • Do not click on any suspicious links or attachments
  • Report the email as spam

Reporting A Scam
If you would like to report a scam the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is the main agency that collects scam reports. Report your scam via email or by phone:
