The Altar Society at St. Malachy 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 strive to support the spiritual welfare of its members as well as provide for the material needs of the altar, sanctuary and sacristy. We also act as hosts for dinners after funerals and at parish receptions. Our meetings are typically held on the 4th Thursday of each month at the Church.

Ongoing volunteer opportunities:
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.
At this time, funeral dinners are not occurring, but feel free to contact Linda in the future!
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!
