Happy Feast of Saint Maximilian Kolbe! There are so many things to say about him! He lived a great devotion to Mary, he was ordained a priest in 1918, he founded a monthly periodical called Knight of the Immaculata that is still in circulation to this day, and he volunteered to die for a man with a family while they were imprisoned in the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Learn more of his powerful story this coming FRIDAY 8/20TH @ the Outdoor Free Movie Night that kicks off our OLM Block Party Welcome Back Fest. We are a society starved of good role models and heroes let us all be inspired by him, we hope to see you then.
