Cyber crime has hit St. Raymond and is hitting dioceses nati
onwide. If/when you receive an email from Fr. Bill Dewan or Rev. William Dewan 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.  Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request they may receive.
