Meet William Patterson, a recipient of our Rental Assistance Program 

In  his words:

Rental assistance has helped me in a great way.   I was down off me feet.  I had no way to pay rent and St. Malachi came through and helped me out.  I’ll volunteer to help out.  Thank God for St. Malachi so that I’m not going to be out on the street.  

Mr. Patterson is a CMHA housing resident who was injured at work on a temp job.  Now that he is well, he is looking for a job.   When asked how the job hunt was going, he said "I’ve got a few things that’s coming back to me so I should be to work in a few weeks.” Update: Mr. Patterson was hired at a factory and began working Oct 25th😊 

A frequent visitor to St. Malachi Parish, Mr. Patterson also enjoys the meals provided by our Back Door Ministry.  He is thankful for the services he receives from St. Malachi and takes pride in assisting with trash pickup on the church grounds. 

St. Malachi Church began providing rental assistance more than 55 years ago when the former pastor, Fr. Paul Hritz, established a fund to aid those in need, primarily in the immediate area of the church.  Mr. Patterson is only one of many individuals and families that come to St. Malachi for rental assistance.  However, Saint Malachi does more than just help with rental assistance.  The parish also helps pay utility bills, phone bills, auto repairs, gasoline for cars, and even purchased steel toe boots so a person could start a new job.  So far in 2021, we have had 27 requests for rental assistance and 6 requests for other assistance.  

 Rental assistance is only one of services of St Malachi Parish Ministries which are the cornerstone of services to parishioners, neighbors, and the poor.  Our Parish Ministries provide parishioners and friends with spiritual growth and parish involvement opportunities.  Our Food Ministries meet the needs of the poor by providing them with nutritious meals, human care and concern.
