Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan with a @gmail account as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card,  please delete it! It is a scam! This email scam is also using other priests’ names in the diocese asking for money or gift cards. All are being sent from an @gmail account. Parishioners can and should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive or may have received.
