The St. Malachi Church run is Saturday, March 11, 2107! Volunteers are needed early in the morning to work a water stop on race day! Over 4,000 runners participate in the race. Help us partner with Hermes Racing to make this run a success. Volunteers had a wonderful time last year. The race supports our ministries. To help, contact Diane Brinich at (216) 521-1360 or Jeanette at the rectory.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Mass & distribution of ashes is at 7:00 AM, 12 PM Noon & 7:30 PM. There is no Wednesday evening prayer this week.
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are Fast days for Catholics from their 18th through 59th birthday. Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat for all who are over 14 years of age. “Fasting” means eating only one “full”/regular meal during the day, making other meals smaller and no “snacks” (except beverages). People with fragile health, special medical conditions or other serious reasons are not required to fast.
Every Friday morning Malachi Center and the Parish distribute clothing from 8-9:30 AM to adults in need of clothes. We are seeking substitutes to help out when one of the two volunteers is unavailable. If you can help call Bob Simoneau at 440-665-6489.
Next weekend, March 4-5, 2017 is the 132nd annual collection for the African American & Native American Missions in the U.S. Supporting this collection helps build the Church in our African American & Native American communities (including our diocese, which received $70,000 from this collection last year.) There will be a second collection at all the Masses.
Your help to prepare the church for Lent is needed & much appreciated. Please meet after Noon Mass this Tuesday, February 28, 2017 in church.
St. Malachi Parish is marching in the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day parade on Friday, March 17, 2017. All are welcome to join in the festivities! We had a good turn out last year and are hoping for bigger participants this year. Two cars are in the parade for anyone who cannot walk the parade. It is a fun time and an opportunity for further fellowship with parishioners. Interested? Questions?
