Join us following the Rosary for a presentation on Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Conventual Franciscan friar who was killed at the Auschwitz concentration camp when he offered his life in exchange for another prisoner. The presentation will be given by Brother Nicholas Obl OSB, a Benedictine Lay Brother of Mount Saviour Benedictine Monastery in Pine City, NY. Brother Nicholas, who presently lives an eremitic life in Chester County, Pennsylvania, will discuss the life and spirituality of St. Maximilian Kolbe. Following the presentation, guests will receive a prayer card and have the opportunity to venerate first and second class relics of St. Maximilian. Additionally, there will be a brief introduction to Blessed Maria Gabriella, with her relics also available for veneration.
