The weekend of March 9 & 10, 2019, is the 135th annual collection for the African American & Native American Missions in the U.S. Supporting this collection helps build the Church in these communities. There will be a second collection at all Masses.
On Sunday, February 24, 2019 Sir Jeffrey Abood, a knight in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, presented at St. Malachi about the suffering of Christians in the Holy Land, and their desperate need for our support.
The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is an order of Knights in continuous service to the Pope since 1133. Their mission today is “to support the Christian presence in the Holy Land.”
Because of severe economic conditions resulting from the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) urgently recommends that we assist through Prayer, Pilgrimage, Projects and Public Actions.
A full copy of Sr. Jeffrey’s disturbing presentation is available here:
All St. Malachi parishioners are encouraged to sacrifice and make the most generous contribution possible to support the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, which is our Lenten mission for 2019. Please bring your contributions on Holy Thursday.

The Ursuline Sisters built new resident apartments for the Ursuline Community and our Sisters have decided to move into them. We will miss our Sisters but wish them many blessings in their new home!
The Ursuline Sisters started teaching at St. Malachi in 1869 (only the girls!). In 1893, when the Christian Brothers left, they were granted permission to teach boys. However, St. Malachi maintained 2 separate schools (boys and girls) until about 1916, when the schools were combined into our current building. In 1968, St. Patrick and St. Malachi Schools merged to become Urban Community School. In 2005, Urban Community School moved to its new location continuing under the direction of the Ursuline Sisters. Thank you Sisters!
The holy season of Lent is nearly upon us. If you find any palms from last year or nail crosses that you’ve been forgetting to return, it’s time to recycle! Containers will be at the church doors for the palms; take the nail crosses directly into the sacristy before or after Mass.
