MALACHY, BROTHER (Charles Connolly)

"He died at Dearborn, Michigan, May 2, 1933, fortified by the Holy Sacraments. In the world, known as Charles Connolly, he was born at Portadown, Co. Armagh, Ireland, July 10, 1858. He was educated at Portadown Academy and St. Patrick's Teachers' College, Dublin, from which he graduated in 1886. Afterward he taught in the schools of his native land. In 1899 he entered the Congregation of Holy Cross, receiving the habit on the feast of the Assumption. Three years later he made his religious profession. Soon afterward he was appointed a prefect in Brownson Hall, Notre Dame, a position he held for several years. Then he taught at St. Edward's College, Austin, Texas; Holy Cross College, New Orleans; Holy Trinity High School, Chicago; and in Sacred Heart College, Watertown, Wisconsin. Brother Malachy was an exemplary religious and much esteemed not only by his confreres but by all with whom he came in contact. He was interred in the Community cemetery at Notre Dame."
