After healing the blind man in today’s Gospel Jesus told him to go, to be on his way. But the man chose to follow Jesus. Being a disciple of Jesus is a choice. The stewardship way of life likewise involves a choice, in fact many choices. We choose to be grateful, we choose to live generously, and we choose to trust that God will always provide for our needs. These are three choices central to the stewardship way of life. What choices will we make this week that give witness to our decision to follow Jesus Christ?

Please contact the office if you are able to help (216) 861-6343).
Beginning this week, Martha Ministry will meet from 9:30 AM-11:30 AM on Tuesdays in church. Everyone is invited to help keep St. Malachi beautiful!
Before he ascended into heaven, Jesus instructed his disciples to proclaim the Gospel to all of creation. As stewards of this legacy, we too are called to give witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our words and actions; in how we live and how we treat others.
Are we sharing the life of Christ with others in our day-to-day lives?
In what ways do we see ourselves proclaiming the Gospel? I
n what ways can we do better?

The Lord is risen! As Christ’s disciples, we are called to go forth and spread the good news of his Resurrection. Our parish’s many ministries are examples of how many of you answer that call. Our ministries need both gifts of time & talent, and also financial help. Please prayerfully consider supporting St. Malachi Parish with electronic donations through Faith Direct.
