Alleluia Fund for Outreach


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

With Alleluia, as with no other single word, we proclaim God’s love for humanity. Transforming this word into action is the mission of the Diocese of Newark’s Alleluia Fund, working to better the lives of our sisters and brothers in need, both at home and in places far away. When giving to the fund, we become Alleluia people, doing the work of Christ in the world and accomplishing things that would likely be impossible for us to do as individual Christians. Food pantries, after school programs, shelters for those most vulnerable, and critically needed international programs—all these are among the vital ministries of our Alleluia Fund partners.

In the spirit of Alleluia,
The Rt. Rev. Carlye J. Hughes
Bishop of Newark
