Everday Prophets Oct 21: Meet Lucretia Bohnack and Sr. Mary Eileen, OSU from Esperanza Threads

The St. Malachi Church Spiritual Development Commission invites you to the next Everyday Prophets event. 

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 21, Lucretia Bohnsack, Executive Director, and Sr. Mary Eileen, OSU, founder, will reflect on Esperanza Threads. This non-profit program works with refugees and many in the Hispanic population to learn sewing techniques that will give them living wage employment in the clothing industry. They also offer their organic items at various fairs, markets, and bazaars in our area. We start at 12:30 (after noon Mass) in the hall.

Everyday Prophets is a lunchtime program to celebrate the work & dedication of those in our community who serve others. Speakers also share stories of their own life’s journey. Bring a lunch (beverage & dessert are provided) and enjoy the stories, fellowship, and inspiration shared.

Annual Parish Picnic Photos and Sunday Homily

We are pleased to share the homily, preached by Fr. Tony Schuerger at the 10AM Mass at the Annual Parish Picnic on Sunday, September 7th. Click here to listen to the homily.

About 160 parishioners and their family members were able to join us for the mass and picnic that followed, which was held at Morgan’s Hollow Pinic Area near the Ohio & Erie Canal Metroparks Reservation in Cuyahoga Heights. All 3 priests, Fr. Jim O’Donnell, Fr. Tony Schuerger and Fr. Neil Walters presided.  The choir, led by Charlene on keyboard, led the parishioners in song.  The weather cooperated beautifully and everyone shared a wonderful liturgy together, which included an insightful and inspirational homily from Fr. Tony.

After the mass, the picnic began. There was plenty of food with appetizers, snacks, side dishes, burgers, hot dogs and also vegan options (new this year).  There were games, such as cornhole and some fun guessing games, for all to participate in. Everyone in attendance received a raffle ticket and many prizes were given away to wrap up the day!

A big thank you to everyone who coordinated the event, our volunteer cooks and all who made this fun celebration of our Parish possible!
