+ Bible Studies and Programs


Walking with Purpose: Opening Your Heart
Walking with Purpose is a Women's Bible Study opportunity that will take you on an exciting journey closed to the heart of God! It is an incredibly effective guide to deep, lasting transformation of the heart. We will explore questions like: How can I conquer my fears? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life? What is the role of suffering in my life? What does the Eucharist have to do with my friendship with Christ? Why and how should I pray? You will walk away from this study with a renewed relationship to God and a deep fellowship with other women in the parish.
When: Mondays starting August 5th through December 16th (except Labor Day)
Time: 7:30PM - 9:00PM
Where: St. Francis Room
Registration is closed for this Bible Study.

Book of Life
November is "The Month of Remembrance." On All Soul's Day the Book of Life is placed in the church beneath the cantor stand. The will remains on display for the month of November. You are invited to write the names of your loved ones who have died in the book and the parish community will remember them in prayer throughout the month. Even if you have written their names in the book in years past, you are invited to do so again.

Memorial Services/Mass:

  • Pregnancy Loss & Early Infant Death - All parents, grandparents, or family members wishing to remember a child who has died are invited to attend a special memorial service during Respect Life Month (October). 
  • All Soul's Day Mass of Remembrance - This Mass is to celebrate the life of our loved ones who have died during the past year. The Book of Life will also be brought out to place our loved ones names during the month of November. 

Please contact Kem Kazmierzak for more information on these groups. 

+ Catholics Returning Home

2013_GrowingInFAith_Catholics Returning Home

Do you know someone who has left the Church? Most of us do not have to look very far to find non-practicing Catholics in our circle of family & friends. Many of us are concerned about these loved ones, but we don’t know how to help them. Obviously, most of them are searching, but how can we help them find their way home?
As baptized, practicing Catholics we have a precious gift of faith & love from the Lord that needs to be shared with our non-practicing brothers and sisters. First, we need to pray for them. Next, we need to extend a personal invitation to them to come home to the Catholic Church. Most non-practicing Catholics are waiting for an invitation to return. Many mistakenly think they are excommunicated & are not welcome to return.
Many non-practicing Catholics carry with them a tremendous amount of guilt and misinformation about the Church & are afraid of approaching the Church for fear of being rejected. You can make a tremendous difference in someone’s life simply by reaching out to them & telling them that we miss them & would like for them to come back home to our Church family.

+ Mornings for Moms

Mornings for Moms meets weekly on Wednesday mornings from 10AM-11AM when St. Malachy School is in session. All women of the parish are welcome to gather together weekly in the Holy Family Room to pray for each other, to support each other and to discuss the next Sunday’s readings as an aid in living out the Word of God. Child care is provided in the Nursery.

No registration is required; all are welcome!


+ Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith or in becoming Catholic, all are invited to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process.  The sessions are informal with a team of  people presenting the faith and then giving time for individuals to discuss and ask questions.  No one ever puts any pressure on anyone to become part of the Catholic community; it is entirely up to the individual who is responding to God’s call in  growing in relationship with Jesus.

You have the opportunity to participate in the RCIA process that begins on Sunday, August 4, 2019 and continues through May. We meet weekly on Sundays from 10:00-11:30 am in the St. Malachy Church Holy Family Room.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Faith Formation Office at our convenience.

All are welcome!
