June 21, 2017 the first day of summer, is National eGiving Day. Our goal for St. Malachi Parish families is to put envelopes on a permanent summer vacation and make the switch to eGiving by enrolling in Faith Direct, an innovative solution that allows you to support our parish using electronic funds transfer from either a bank account or credit/debit card.
By embracing this practice, you will simplify your giving and help provide our parish with consistent support during the summer months when many families are vacationing out of town. Participating in National eGiving Day and enrolling in Faith Direct will provide consistency and predictability to our offertory and this will help us do even more to spread Christ’s love throughout the community.
Being part of this challenge is simple: Visit www.faithdirect.net and use our church code: OH337. Thank you for your continued support of our parish family with your time and talents. May God bless you and your loved ones abundantly this summer and throughout the year.
In today’s second reading, Saint Paul’s final appeal is a call for unity. God created that unity. Good stewards who share Christ’s life in the Eucharist belong to each other, just as God in the three persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit enjoy unity. We are an intimate part of God’s divine bond, God’s “family.” Saint Paul maintains that we ought to act that way.
In the Church there is a bond of family, yet plenty room for variety. Christian stewards use their uniquely varied gifts to live a Trinitarian faith, in unity, promoting Christ’s peace.
We send our prayers and congratulations to Patricia Burcham, who was baptized at St. Malachi as an infant. On Pentecost, she was received into full communion in the Catholic Church and received Confirmation and Eucharist. May God abundantly bless you, Patricia Brigette, and may you find love and support here at St Malachi!
Join us at St Patrick rectory Tuesdays at 7: PM to reflect and share about the Gospel for the coming Sunday. All are welcome!
