Dear Parishioners , Friends and Donors of Our Lady of Czestochowa church in Harrison
Thank you for visiting our GoFundMe page. We are all overwhelmed and astonished with these challenging times we are faced with. First of all we pray for this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, to end so we can put some normacy and security back in our lives. So we can return to our parishes to pray and celebrate and adore the soon Risen Lord. Today we are asking everyone to help us and support our Parish , the parish of Our Lady of Czestochowa where every donation, matters. We are grateful to everyone for your generosity and your help. In return, I promise to pray for you, for your families and your loved ones. May God bless all of us, our Parish, our Archdiocese.
Fr. Pawel Molewski,
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.
