The BIBLE and the VIRGIN MARY - Journey Through Scripture
Father Danda brings you on a Journey through Scripture, the St. Paul Center's dynamic Bible study program designed to help ordinary Catholics grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith. Distinctively Catholic, Journey through Scripture reads the Bible from the heart of the Church, engaging both the Old and New Testaments and how they work together. It's grounded in history, yet actively engages topics faced by today's Catholics. More than just an ordinary Bible study; its' biblical catechesis.
This particular program brings up closer in relationship to Jesus through Our Blessed Mother Mary. This program can also be found on FORMED.
When: Wednesdays - Mar. 4, 18, 25; Apr. 1,8
Where: Holy Family Room
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.
- 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). This year, the service will be held on October 13th at 11:10 AM, after the 10AM Mass.
- 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. This year's Mass of Remembrance is November 5 at 6PM.

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.
For more information, please call Chad Jasper.

Women Answering Yes

Mornings for Moms meets weekly on Thursday mornings from 9:30AM-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!
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!
Men’s Spirituality Group meets on the second Saturday of each month from 7:00-8:15 am in the St. Francis Room at the Church to read and reflect on the Sunday readings and to share their faith. In addition, the group participates in the 8:15 am Mass.
Young Adult Ministry is returning St. Malachy community! Generated through parishioner leadership, it hopes to serve those members in their 20s and 30s.
