Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of inclement weather, the Cluster Parishes offices may be closed. If the weather or road conditions seem questionable, please call 757-484-7335 to confirm if the offices are open. Your safety is our primary concern.
With the Holiday Season underway, we want to offer a reminder to all to be vigilant against online Scams. Scammers are out i full force during the holiday and we've gotten a few reports from the field already. Don't be taken by those out to use the busyness and good of the season to do harm. A few things to look out for as always:
Call, Emails, Tets, Instant Messgaes, Etc. asking for gift cards, funds, cash apps or money wires on behalf of the Biship, pastors, church staff other parishioners, etc.
Calls, Emails, Texts, Instant Messages, Etc. indicating that your account or purchase shipment has been compromised or that you need to "click this link" to confirm your accout or order.
Unknow person asking for your passsord, Social Security Number or access to your computer.
If you receive suspicious communications:
Delete it. Don't engage with the person on the other end.
Great News!! We are now using Flock Notes to better communicate with our parishioners. If you haven't received a flock note it's because we don't have a good email for you. Please send an email to [email protected] with the email you read most often. If you are a new parishioner, please register with a good email and phone number.
Currently we have been using a Facebook Group called "Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake Official Group". We will be moving over to using a Facebook page (Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake). This allows us to be more transparent. You don't have to join, you just have to like and follow the group to get updates. Otherwise you can just go look at the page without any other action. We will be live streaming masses from the Page. I will update on the group where to go but for anyone, you can go to the page and see what is going on. I hope this helps. Just trying to survive the IT learning curve. Theresa
Ethics Abuse Hotline Established by Diocese
Bishop Knestout announces the implementation of a hotline to report suspected financial, administrative or human resource misconduct within the Diocese of Richmond.
The hotline is handled through EthicsPoint, an independent, third-party reporting system, to ensure accountability and transparency. This helps to safeguard the resources entrusted to us by the people of our diocese. Reports can be made online or by phone. Employees, volunteers, clergy, parishioners and any other individual wishing to make a report can do so anonymously.
The hotline number is not a 911 or emergency service number. Individuals should not use this number to report information that is of an immediate threat to life or property.
Additionally, EthicsPoint is NOT intended to receive information about sexual abuse allegations. Abuse allegations should be reported immediately to local law enforcement and the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1-833-454-9064.
Additional information including a video message and letter from Bishop Knestout, a list of frequently asked questions and other resources regarding EthicsPoint can be found by visiting the diocesan website.
