My Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I know this is stressful times for everyone, however, God is still with us all and the church is still here for you even if we can not worship in person together. We set up this page with a weekly goal of $2,779.00 for that is our weekly budget and even with no public worship bills need to be paid and the church maintained. As we support you, we ask that you support us. I as pastor of Immaculate conception parish, Hackensack, N.J. want you to all know that you are in my heart and prayers. I will be saying a daily rosary for all of you to remain safe and healthy and for those who are sick for a quick recovery. I am also hoping to be able to live streams masses several times a week and I ask that you see the parish website www.icchackensack.com for further information and links. Keep the faith and know that God hears us and will answer us and we will be worshiping together before you know it. God Bless and be well, Fr. Michael Trainor, Pastor Immaculate Conception parish.
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.
