Christ the King Church
On July 3, 1930 the letters of incorporation were finalized, and formal documentation of the Church of Christ the King was in place. The land was purchased for the construction of a church to house the community of believers known as the parish of Christ the King. Christ the King is the first Black Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Newark, NJ. Built by and for Black Catholics. Within that first year 300 Blacks joined the "new Negro Roman Catholic Church of Christ the King”.
Today we are a small but growing community open to where the Spirit is leading us. The needs of the community around us are great and with grateful hearts and working hands we serve them thru our Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry.
Come worship with our community located at 768 Ocean Avenue, Jersey City or visit our website at christthekingjerseycity.org.
Rev. Esterminio Chica
The Archdiocese of Newark
Welcome. The Archdiocese of Newark is coordinating with the team at GoFundMe to provide one online location for the faithful to support the critical needs of their own parish (through this page) or other parish communities (through the Parishes in Need fund). The faithful may also contribute through their usual channels (e.g., envelopes, other online giving, the Annual Appeal).
Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to your parish on the parish’s GoFundMe page, or to the Parishes in Need fund, which will be used to conduct outreach to those in need and support those communities struggling to continue to pay their employees and church utility bills through this crisis. Contributions raised through the parish GoFundMe page will benefit that parish.
Cardinal Tobin has waived the usual archdiocesan assessment for contributions raised through this initiative. GoFundMe does not charge a platform fee (0%). There is a 0% platform fee and only an industry-standard payment processing fee of 1.9% + $0.30 per donation. If a charity receives a donation of $100, they will net $97.80. Donors will also have the option to tip GoFundMe Charity to support their continued business.
Thank you for your generosity to your parish and to those parish communities unable to meet their critical needs alone.
