Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
In these difficult times, without our Sunday Masses and collections, we are still in need of your financial support and ask your help to the extent that you are able. Of course your regular envelopes and online donations are so welcome. At the same time, this GoFundeMe* initiative provides a convenient additional way to contribute! The $20,000 goal represents the lost revenue for the last 2 Sundays.
We are live-streaming and posting Mass on Facebook Mon-Sat at 9 am; for Sundays: in English on Sat at 3 pm ; for Spanish Sat at 4 pm) .
God bless you in your generosity!
Father Joe Chapel, Pastor

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.
