Woman Repeatedly Requesting Money
We wanted to make you all aware of a situation we have had over the past month: a young woman has been repeatedly coming to the rectory and the church asking for money (usually $60). She is very persistent and gets angry if you say no. Although she has been offered food and referrals to social services, she is only interested in specific amounts of cash. While we are all called to act with charity, in the interest of safety, we have contacted the police.
The woman has been informed that she is not allowed on parish property which includes the parking lot. If you encounter her:
- Do not approach her
- Do not give her money
- Call the police
