My Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Joseph the Carpenter Parish,
During this time of crisis and uncertainty in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, St. Paul reminds us in his Letter to the Philippians to “have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (4:6). We are hopeful, that the Risen Lord will “dispel wickedness, wash faults away, restore innocence to the fallen, and joy to mourners” (Easter Proclamation). Please, stay close to Jesus and the Blessed Mother in prayer, asking that those who are suffering from the disease or from any related anxiety may find healing and peace.
That’s why, putting trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, I am asking all of you to please support our parish financially. We are a very diversified community and are offering services and prayer devotions on various occasions in many languages (English, Spanish, French, Creole, Tagalog), with social outreach not only to our parishioners but the whole Roselle community.
You can also make donation to St. Joseph from your PC or Mac, right from your tablet or smartphone, using our online giving service – WeShare at: https://stjosephsroselle.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities.

With steadfast prayer and thanksgiving, Fr. Kris
St. Joseph, guardian and protector of the Holy Family, pray for us.
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.
