GIVING TREE THANK YOU NOTES
Dear Father Wild and Parishioners,
In the name of our IHM Sisters of Camilla Hall, we wish to express our deep gratitude for the generous outpouring of gift cards from your parish. Each year Saint Teresa's Parish is extremely thoughtful of the IHM Sisters in Camilla. We are so grateful to you and your parishioners for their continued support and love. Special thanks to Lori Tedjeske for organizing the project and delivering the gifts. We promise our prayers for all of Saint Teresa's parishioners and ask that God's abundant graces and blessings be yours in this New Year.

SCAM EMAIL ALERT!
Please be advised that there is a nationwide scam that has affected several parishes in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The particular scam is titled the "Gift Card" scam. In this scam, the parishioners of a parish are the targets. An unknown person creates an email address account which contains the pastor's name or the name of the church. An email is then sent to parishioners requesting them to purchase gift cards and then proceed to tell the unknown person the numbers off of the backs of the cards. After the person received the numbers, they stopped sending emails.
Multiple parishioners have been receiving emails from a fake Gmail account posing as Fr. Wild. Please do not respond to any request for money. The fake address is email@example.com.
As a general rule, if anyone asks you for money by purchasing gift cards, it is a scam. Please inform anyone who you think may be susceptible to this kind of scam, especially the elderly. Our parish staff deeply regrets this deceitful attempt to victimize our parishioners. Again, please do not respond to the email.
Fr. Jerry Wild
Please see the following example of the scam:
PEACE OF CHRIST
Hi Deacon, I need a favor from you. Please email me back as soon as possible.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanking and Regards,
Fr. Jerome Wild

Dear Father Wild and Kind Parishioners,
Birthright of West Chester would like to thank you for the generosity you have extended to the mothers and pregnant women of our community through your Giving Tree. Your thoughtful contribution of diapers, wipes, crib sheets, and many other baby items is greatly appreciated by the women, girls, and babies we serve. This all helps us to continue with the important work that we do, and to help provide the families with what they truly need. Without the generosity of donors like you, many less fortunate families would have little or nothing for their babies.
Yours in Life,
Helen M. Lyons
Birthright of West Chester
