+ Catholics Returning Home

2013_GrowingInFAith_Catholics Returning Home

Do you know someone who has left the Church? Most of us do not have to look very far to find non-practicing Catholics in our circle of family & friends. Many of us are concerned about these loved ones, but we don’t know how to help them. Obviously, most of them are searching, but how can we help them find their way home?
As baptized, practicing Catholics we have a precious gift of faith & love from the Lord that needs to be shared with our non-practicing brothers and sisters. First, we need to pray for them. Next, we need to extend a personal invitation to them to come home to the Catholic Church. Most non-practicing Catholics are waiting for an invitation to return. Many mistakenly think they are excommunicated & are not welcome to return.
Many non-practicing Catholics carry with them a tremendous amount of guilt and misinformation about the Church & are afraid of approaching the Church for fear of being rejected. You can make a tremendous difference in someone’s life simply by reaching out to them & telling them that we miss them & would like for them to come back home to our Church family.

For more information, please call Chad Jasper at (317) 650-5751 or email .  

+ Marriage Ministry

TEAMS OF OUR LADY (TOOL) Marriage Ministry is growing at St. Malachy Parish and all married couples are invited. If you are interested in growing closer to your spouse in love and holiness, while being part of a small faith group by praying and laughing together with other married couples, please contact the Faith Formation Office.

+ Mary's WAY

Thank you to all who attended the 2018 Mary's WAY Annual Dinner!

Look back to our website in October 2019 for the next one!

 

 

 

+ Mornings for Moms

Mornings for Moms meets weekly on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:00 am when St. Malachy School is in session. All women of the parish are welcome to gather together weekly in the Holy Family Room to pray for each other, to support each other and to discuss the next Sunday’s readings as an aid in living out the Word of God. Child care is provided in the Nursery.

No registration is required; all are welcome!

 

+ Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith or in becoming Catholic, all are invited to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process.  The sessions are informal with a team of  people presenting the faith and then giving time for individuals to discuss and ask questions.  No one ever puts any pressure on anyone to become part of the Catholic community; it is entirely up to the individual who is responding to God’s call in  growing in relationship with Jesus.

You have the opportunity to participate in the RCIA process that begins on Sunday, January 13, 2019 and continues through April. We meet weekly on Sundays from 10:00-11:30 am in the St. Malachy Church Holy Family Room.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Faith Formation Office at our convenience.

All are welcome!

+ Young at Heart

All are invited to be part of the “Young at Heart” group. We gather together for Mass followed by a pitch-in lunch about once a month. This is a wonderful way to meet people in the parish and share conversation and food. Stop in for fun, food and fellowship!
