Most Updated on Padre Ismael’s health status
Saturday, May 11
Padre Ismael had his heart surgery at 7am. The triple bypass went very well. Alleluia! He still stays in a recovery room in good spirit. Thank you very much for all your prayers and sacrifices offering to God for Padre Ismael. He sends his gratitude and blessing to all of you. Please continue to pray that God grants him a speedy recovery.

Fake e-mails & Fake text-phone-numbers
asking for money, gift cards
Our pastor Fr. Bao’s official church e-mail address is “email@example.com” and office phone number is “714-544-3250”. Recently the scammers created a lot of different gmail addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) and 2 different text numbers (929-367-1973; 410-921-3274) and pretended to be a pastor who sent out fake e-mails and text messages to borrow cash or gift cards by asking parishioners to scratch the pin number on the back of gift cards, take a picture of the pin number and e-mail that picture to the scammers. Be assured that our pastor Fr. Bao never does those fake things. You may wish to reply back to the scammers a short note to ask them to stop and indicate that “God knows their trick very well.” Then you block both the scammers’ fake e-mail addresses and fake text-phone-numbers. One says, “Doing wrong is bad. Staying in the wrong is worse.” We pray that they asap amend and live their lives better for Eternity, and may God forgive them.
