Holy Trinity Church of Hackensack~Teaneck
My Brothers & Sisters, with this pandemic and the restriction on our movements and Masses being suspended I have had to lay off our parttime workers. Each Sunday we are closed, the parish loses $8000 which is vital to the daily operation of the parish. I hope you will be able to continue your weekly contribution through GoFundMe or by sending your envelopes via mail.
I also would like to say that the church is open for private prayer 7 AM till 4 PM weekdays and 7 AM till 1 PM on Sundays with Adoration. We are also reaching out to our parishers who may need help in getting groceries and other necessities, especially those elderly bound to their homes. If you need help pleas call.
While I cannot celebrate a public Mass I am celebrating it privately and praying for you and for a quick end to this pestilence.
God's peace and may he send his Angels to protect you.
Pax Christi, Fr. Paul
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.
