Thank you for your support of OLS. During these unprecedented times in the life of our world, nation, and Church, we are depending on the generosity of our parishioners to sustain all that we strive to do at OLS. We chose a fundraising goal of $13,000 because that is the approximate amount of our regular Sunday collection.
For the most current updates on what is happening in our parish, go to our Facebook group page. Even if you don't normally use Facebook, you can still view our posts.
You can also go to our web page, which we will strive to keep current (though Facebook is a much better option): https://olschurch.com/
We plan to livestream our 10:00 am Sunday Mass every week. We will do so on our Facebook page. Please virtually unite yourselves with us as we celebrate Holy Mass.
Thank you and God bless you!
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.
