It has come to the Diocese of St. Petersburg’s attention that parishioners have been receiving text messages, emails or direct messages asking for money and gift cards from people pretending to be Bishop Parkes. The bishop or priests might occasionally send an email notifying people about a fundraising campaign and request participation. People should always check with their parish to verify the legitimacy of an email, text or social media message before responding.
Please be sure you are following the official social media channels for Bishop Parkes and not an imposter account:
