St. Malachy had a busy day today!  This morning we celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Following Mass our middle school students spent today immersed in Coding and STEM (Science, technology, engineering & Mathematics) activities.  Check out our slide show on Facebook.  This afternoon our Advent Angels gathered to make stockings for Jesus.
