In Response to the Current Health Crisis

May 8 Update

This afternoon Archbishop Schnurr announced that public Masses may resume in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati beginning Monday, May 25. Read his full letter here.

With great joy, St. Max is happy to announce that beginning on Monday, May 25 at 8:30 AM Mass, our full parish Mass schedule will resume and be open to the public. Archbishop Schnurr has dispensed all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati from their obligation to attend Sunday Mass. Those who are at risk, or fearful that they or their family might become sick are encouraged to stay home and join via live streaming.

This Week's Schedule

Now that our liturgies are once again open to the public, we have returned to our regular Mass and confession schedule. 

Mass Schedule
Mon-Sat: 8:30 AM
Tues & Thurs: 6:30 AM
Saturday Vigil: 4:30 PM
Sunday: 6:30 AM (temporary), 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM & 12:00 PM
Please note we have temporarily added a 6:30 AM Mass on Sunday to help with over crowding. 

Sacrament of Reconciliation
Tuesday: After the 6:30 AM Mass
Thursday: After the 8:30 AM Mass & 6:00 - 6:45 PM
Saturday:  After the 8:30 AM Mass & 3:00 - 4:00 PM
We will also return to using the confessional.  The set up will be altered so as to minimize contact with the space as well as other people.

Live Streaming
Those who are sick, are part of an at risk population or who are particularly vulnerable are encouraged to continue to join us virtually. Remember, everyone is  dispensed from their obligation at this time. Keep watching our liturgies online at www.saint-max.org/StreamSpot, Facebook LIVE or YouTube LIVE.

The main church building will be open daily until 8:00 PM and the Blessed Sacrament Chapel will remain open 24/7.
