*** For the month of April we have another goal of $4000 which is added to the previous one ***
Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Michael’s,
Thank you for visiting our GoFundMe page. In these challenging times, we are reaching out to you with the message of hope, for which we pray here at our Parish. Hope never fails, because it comes from God, who is always faithful, and he remembers his eternal mercies.
We know how important it is for all of us to feel, and to practice solidarity, which we all have been able to experience many times. Today we are asking everyone to help us through this platform to support our beloved Parish—every donation, even the smallest one, does matter.
We are grateful to everyone for your generosity and your help. In return, we promise to pray for you – our benefactors, for your families and your loved ones. May God bless all of us, our Parish, our Archdiocese and our Country.
St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Lyndhurst, NJ
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.
