Thank you for visiting our GoFundMe page. This has been established by the Cardinal and his Consultants to help us to maintain some financial stability during this very difficult time in the life of our church. Vendors and utilities must be paid and salaries met. Simply the basics, Based upon our weekly revenue, our goal is set at $4,500.00. It will be a blessing beyond belief to me if you help us (you and I) to reach this goal. This is the equivalent of your regular weekly offering which is also why I highly encourage when you return your participation in We Share on line giving. To remain connected to you in prayer, we are now taping our weekend Masses and posting onto our social media On Facebook and YouTube.
In the interim please let us pray for each other and all suffering at this time. May this COVD-19 pandemic come to a swift and healthy end. God bless you all.
Loving you always,
Fr. Peter Palmisano, Fr. Marco Vitrano, Fr. George Reilly, Fr. Colin Kay & Deacon Anthony Lafranca
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.
