An apt time to be reflecting on the life, witness and martyrdom of St Maximilian Kolbe.


Saint Maximilian  was a Polish Franciscan Friar who was sent to Auschwitz for hiding Jews during the Second World War. When the Nazi guards selected 10 people to be starved to death in punishment, Kolbe volunteered to die in place of a stranger.

St Maximilian pray for us; pray for this world.
