Dear Parishioners and friends of Saint Benedict:
You are invited to continue to help your Church in these difficult times. Although the parishes are closed, the expenses to maintain them continue. Let this be another opportunity to grow in Christian Love.
Se les invita a seguir ayudando a su Iglesia en estos tiempos difíciles. Aunque las parroquias están cerradas, los gastos para mantenerlas continúan. Que esta sea otra oportunidad para crecer en el Amor Cristiano.
Você é convidado a continuar a ajudar a sua Igreja nestes tempos difíceis. Embora as paróquias estejam fechadas, as despesas para mantê-las continuam. Que esta seja mais uma oportunidade para crescer no Amor Cristão.
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.
