January 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Henry J. Smith Charitable Trust! This Trust has been a tremendous aid to St Malachy School since its foundation. It was an integral part of our two building additions, and continues to be very active in supporting the strength of our educational and formational mission. They provide regular support for ordinary operations and tuition assistance, and have been a part of our push to improve our teacher compensation. Most recently they made possible the installation of air conditioning units for our classrooms, which also provide better heat regulation in the rooms and so are improving the teaching environment of the classrooms all year long! I thank the trustees and all who have supported this fund for all that they do. In this time of isolation the school serves an especially important role in providing connections and support for the students in mind, body, and soul.
