August 14th is the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe. Our church will celebrate this feast on August 16th. What better way to celebrate while staying safe than to create your own Polish feast at home? My husband and I traveled to Poland for our niece’s wedding in 2010 where we fell in love with the people, the country and, of course, the food! For those of you who are of Polish heritage and those of us who are Polish at heart, I hope you will try one or more recipe or add a tradition to this wonderful feast day. Do you have a Polish tradition or favorite recipe? Please share it on Facebook and tag St. Max!

In honor of our parish patron, all are invited to wear red to Mass (whether attending in person or online), on August 15/16. We wear red to honor St. Maximilian, as martyr, as he chose to lay down his life for a fellow prisoner in Auschwitz during World War II.
