Altar Society

Altar Society

The Altar Society is a service and social ministry open to all women of the parish. As a Catholic women’s organization, we are also members of the National Council of Catholic Women. We offer spirituality, leadership, and service opportunities, resources, and programs.

The Altar Society is a friendly, welcoming group of women of all ages supporting each other spiritually as well as providing for the material needs of the altar, sanctuary and sacristy. One of our many services to our church is acting as hosts for dinners after funerals and at parish receptions. Please see our events tab to join us for our next meeting! 



Upcoming Events



The St. Malachy Altar Society serves the parish in many ways including funeral meals and preparing and serving at church receptions. It is in giving that we receive.  

I Want to Volunteer!

Funeral Dinners

The Altar Society is honored to be able to serve dinner for families after the funeral of their loved ones. Volunteers are always needed to make food, set up the dining area, serve the meal and clean up afterwards. Please contact Linda Cunningham to volunteer for this important ministry.


The Altar Society creates a beautiful quilt each year to be auctioned off at the annual Christmas Bazaar. This year, women interested in assisting can contact Mark K. Garrison at 317-852-5910. The group will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Experience not necessary.
