Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
It has been more than a year since the Covid-19 pandemic hit all of us. This GoFundMe account was created at that time to enable you to financially support your parish when you were unable to come to church.
As you know, our church doors are now wide open. We are welcoming back all members of our parish family, as well as other Catholics looking for a place to worship the Lord.
It is heartwarming to see so many of you at Mass, praying and worshipping with your fellow parish members. I encourage you to invite other people to join us at the altar of the Lord. Be good disciples of Christ who commanded us, “Go, therefore, and make disciples!” (Matthew 28:19)
Also, I encourage you to continue praying for your parish and supporting it financially. Our financial situation is more challenging than ever. Our weekly collections are not enough to meet the needs of the parish. Besides our regular operating expenses, there are maintenance issues and renovations that need to be addressed.
I thank all of you who bring your contributions to church and place them in the collection boxes located by our baptismal font. I am also grateful to those who send in their contributions by way of postal mail, through their bank, or through GoFundMe.Please continue to do so.
Lastly, I want to let you know that our complete Sunday Bulletin and other important information is on our website olmnj.org. We are also on Facebook: facebook.com/ourladyofmercyjerseycityofficial
Again, thank you for your love, support, understanding, and prayers. Stay safe and be well! And may God bless you all.
+ Father Marty
