Homeless Jesus Sculpture "at Home" at St. Malachi
The Homeless Jesus Sculpture, part of the Matthew 25 Collection by artist Timothy Schmalz, has found the perfect home at St. Malachi Parish. Dedicated to serving the poor has been St. Malachi’s mainstay. From the early days of St. Malachi, the parish aided and ministered to the Irish immigrants who came to the United States. As the years went by St. Malachi continued to care for its people. Lead by Fr. Molony, St. Malachi was instrumental in cleaning up the neighborhood around the parish and reducing crime. During the Great Depression, St. Malachi began to serve sandwiches to the poor and hungry from the back door of the rectory. This practice was revived by Fr. Paul Hritz in the early 1970’s and it continues grow and develop as the needs of our homeless and less fortunate neighbors continues to intensify.
Fr. Molony took great care of his "flock" providing them with the sacraments and setting up "wholesome outlets for recreation and social life" as well as creating spiritual organizations to feed their souls.
St. Malachi carries on these traditions of caring for mind, body and soul by providing meals for the poor and homeless and avenues for spiritual growth to everyone it serves through our ministries!
