    A man pretending to be a Catholic priest or monk who says he wants to build a convent or monastery is asking for money. He’s using the name Ryan Scott or Abbot Ryan St. Anne Gevelinger. The phony apparently turned up recently in Howard County.

    He is not a Catholic priest. Other dioceses in St. Louis.. LaCrosse, Wisconsin.. Peoria, Illinois.. Bismarck, North Dakota.. and Dubuque, Iowa have issued cautions as well.

    Officials say he is NOT building a convent or monastery in the Diocese.

    The Missouri House has already passed the jumping jack legislation sponsored by Democratic Rep. Pat Conway, and it is now being considered by the Senate.
    The effort by fourth-graders at Pershing Elementary School began in 2008. And each year since, the school’s fourth-grade class continues to try to get the legislation passed, recently capturing the interest of Conway. Through the painstaking legislative process, the class has produced brochures on the issue, made four-hour trips to the state capital, watched debates and even lobbied lawmakers.

    “This is great idea, and I’m happy to help the children,” Conway told reporters. “A group (of students) came and testified before the committee, and boy they really sold it. They got it to the House floor.”
