My Dear Friends in Christ,
This Lent and Easter has us living it in a very different way than we have been used to, but we are not to live it in fear. Rather we take the Hope of this coming Easter and apply it today and to our lives! We join Christ as he felt alone at the cross, isolated for a short time, his friends left him except for two, the Apostle John and his mother, Mary.
Let us remain steadfast in our faith. Easter is around the corner. We may not be able to gather in person, but we are united in spirit.
We at Nativity are working hard to be available to you by phone, email and on the internet.
We can get together online. See our future masses online at https://www.facebook.com/nativity.church.583
On the web we are located at: www.nativitynj.org
Sign up for our weekly Crib Notes, by sending an email to us.
Stay informed and stay in touch, stay safe,
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.
