As Pastor of your parish, I want to assure you that you and your loved ones continue to be in my Mass intentions and prayers as we stay strong together in these difficult times.
I encourage you to continue to nourish your souls through Mass and prayer from the safety of your homes.
Our parish has had the good fortune of having so many people who helped establish it 65 years ago and fortify it throughout the years to create a unique environment of a dedicated Slovak Language Parish.
I ask you for your financial help now to aid us in meeting our needs during this crucial time. We are asking our parishioners to consider donating their weekly church offering to our parish through this Go Fund Me page.
We also welcome donations from all friends of our parish.
May God bless all of us and keep us safe from harm.
Rev. Mariusz Luksza
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.
