We are called to follow Christ as missionary disciples by serving others and living our faith in all that we do. Let us take a few moments each day from this Friday, June 22 – Friday, June 29, 2018 to pray, reflect, and take action on religious liberty, both in this country and abroad.
June 21, 2018 the first day of summer, is National eGiving Day. Our goal for St. Malachi 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 St. Malachi using electronic funds transfer from either a bank account or credit/debit card. This way, you simplify your giving &and help provide St. Malachi with consistent support during the summer months when many people vacation 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 St. Malachi & our ministries with your time, talents and treasure!

Because of your generosity during the Lenten season, St. Malachi parishioners donated $2,590.25 to the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief Fund. This gift made a profound difference for our Christian brothers and sisters who continue to suffer violent persecution and exile in their ancient Middle East homelands. The Knights of Columbus thank you for the love and solidarity shown by your support.

Most visitors to St. Malachi comment on how beautiful our church looks. This happens through the efforts of many generous and hard-working individuals. As a parish, we do well for the special seasons, but our church has needs throughout the year!
We are forming a Martha Ministry to assist with some of these ongoing tasks in the church. We meet at 9:00 AM Tuesday mornings for 1- 2 hours to work at needed tasks such as cleaning, ironing, sewing. Questions? Call Chris: (216) 631-6961.

On Sunday, May 13, 2018 CBS 60 Minutes provided an early look at the documentary film, Pope Francis — A Man of his Word and reported that it is an intimate portrait of a new kind of Pope. 60 Minutes interviewed Wim Wenders who made the film. He noted that Pope Francis spoke spontaneously on matters both spiritual and secular, entirely without notes and largely without filter.
