Know Someone Who Could Use a Caring Visitor?

If you know of a housebound person who lives in our parish boundaries who would appreciate calls or weekly visits from a volunteer in our Caring Visitors ministry, please call the parish office at 816-523-2405.






Please remember emails from Fr. Greg or the parish staff will be sent from a address. Messages from other addresses are from scammers and are not legitimate. If you are unsure about a message or request please start a new email to the appropriate address. Do not reply to the original email.

Several parishioners have received emails recently from “Rev. Greg Haskampp” or some other incorrect variation on his name, vaguely requesting assistance and asking for a reply.

If you receive such a message, please check 1) the email address with what is listed in the bulletin 2) the spelling of Fr. Greg’s name and 3) the content of the message before replying, especially if the request is a vague invitation to help with an unspecified task. It most likely is a phishing scam.

Fr. Greg will typically use the phone to request a conversation with someone. If he uses email, the purpose is made explicit in the message and should obviously be connected to parish business. When in doubt, create a new message rather than replying to the original one.

This is not unique to St. Elizabeth and parishes across the country have been targeted. Here are two articles:
