Blessed Sacrament Chapel 
Our Blessed Sacrament Chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for individual and communal prayer. The Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet are prayed daily before and after all Masses. Every Thursday after the morning Mass, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed.  A Eucharistic Holy Hour begins each Thursday at 7:00 PM, concluding with Evening Prayer (Vespers) and Benediction.

Join us on the Mondays of Lent (February 19, 26 and March 5, 12, 19, 26) after the 8:30 AM Mass until 5:00 PM for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel. To sign up for a Holy Hour on a Monday during Lent click here


Ash Wednesday is a day of fast (no more than one meal and nothing between meals) for those age 18-59.  Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence from meat, for those age 14 and over.  

Optional fasting and abstinence - Where possible, everyone is encouraged to choose another day during the week to fast and/or abstain from meat.  Ideally, the Lenten regulations of fasting and abstinence are minimum times and not the only times to exercise these disciplines.


Charitable works of mercy as well as financial donations earmark the Lenten season. At St. Max we offer multiple opportunities to give for the common good of neighbor.  In the gym, the Outreach Commission and its ministries sponsor an annual event called Just Try It after all Masses on March 3 & 4. (See bulletin for more details.) Likewise, as our parish tradition has been, please bring a non-perishable food item for Reach Out Lakota to our Lenten Fish Fry and you will receive a free soft drink.
2018 Almsgiving

February 17 & 18 – Donate a bag of toiletries for the Just Try It outreach project which benefits the local homeless. Pick up a rice bowl for Catholic Relief Services to help feed the hungry in other countries. All collections are to be dropped off at the outreach kiosk in the gathering space.
February 24 & 25 – Remember to bring in toiletry items to help with the homeless in local shelters. Also consider bringing a bible to donate to the sick.
March 3 & 4 – Please stop by the gym after Mass for our parish Just Try It  - write a handmade card, pack a few small items for a toiletry bag for the homeless, and find out more about our service opportunities from our parish outreach ministries! Be sure to get your card punched for some cool prizes! Flyers and bags for our Lenten food drive will also be distributed at all Masses. Bring suggested food items next week.
March 10 & 11 –  Return the food items that will benefit the less fortunate at our local food pantries, Reach Out Lakota and Serve City in Hamilton. Bins will be in the gathering space. 
March 17 & 18 – Consider donating a gently used or new rosary in the small basket on the outreach kiosk. These rosaries will be used for our funeral ministry. 
March 24 & 25 – If you have been filling your CRS rice bowl with coins, please return to the parish office or the outreach kiosk.
