Welcome! We're glad you're here!

Our Mission Statement at The Church of St. Maximilian Kolbe is

Letting the Eucharist lead by allowing the love of Christ and the truths of His church to transform our hearts
and mind, and inviting others to journey with us.

"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image
from one degree of glory to another."  2 Corinthians 3:18

Expanded Confession Times during Advent We are fortunate to have Fr Kowalczyk hear confessions for us, and he has expanded the times one is able to receive this sacrament during Advent.
