Welcome to Our Parish

Wecome to Our Parish

"Grace and peace to you from God our Father And the Lord Jesus Christ"

With these words of St. Paul, used as a greeting in many of his epistles, I bid you a warm welcome to the St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish website!

As you explore our website, I hope you find it useful and informative – our parish has dozens and dozens ministries and activities and continues to add other programs and opportunities to minister to our diverse and continually growing faith community. There is something for everyone at St. Max!

For those who are new to Liberty Township or surrounding areas and if you are looking for a faith community, I encourage you to “check us out” and celebrate the Eucharist with us some weekend. You will find St. Max parishioners to be very friendly and welcoming. I know this from personal experience when I became pastor here in July 2009! So please introduce yourself that we might begin to get to know you. Let us continue to pray for one another as we build up that unique part of the Body of Christ which is St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish.

God bless one and all!  Fr. Geoff
