Welcome to St. Malachy's Jr. High Youth Ministry

Wow! How have we gotten to May already? This year has gone by so fast. We've had a great year and I am looking forward to all the activities this summer. 

Are you interested in wiping out your Confirmation Service Hours for the upcoming year? You can do that by attending the three major events this summer:
          Nun Run Run Day Trip (Girls) 
          Emmaus Days at Peoria Notre Dame (Boys) 
          Stuenbenville (8th graders)
          Totus Tuus (all)
