I wanted to provide you with an update. The staff and I are developing new ways of satisfying your spiritual needs during the quarantine. We will be rolling them out soon.
I have been recording Mass each day that is being offered in the Church and uploading it to YouTube. Hopefully, you can view them, at least on Sunday! To find the Masses, click click here.
Thank you to all of you who have contributed to this campaign so far! The people of Guardian Angel are fantastic!
Guardian Angel has lost about half of its weekly collection and all of the income from renting out the Red Barn and Auditorium. Each week that goes on, I will be increasing the goal of this campaign by $5000 to account for that shortfall.
I humbly ask that you please consider helping Guardian Angel out in whatever way you can at this point to support the parish financially.
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.
