From August 14th, his feast day, through the 17th in four different locations comes a one-man play about the life of Saint Maximilian Kolbe. Premiered at the 1993 World Youth Day in Denver, the play continues to be performed to this day. It was signed by Francis Gajowniczek – the very man for whom Fr. Maximilian offered his life in Auschwitz!

Saint Maximilian Kolbe has a powerful, yet cautionary, message for all of us – not to take the freedoms we cherish for granted, but rather to defend them with our lives.”

*If you are interested in seeing the play as a group on Friday, August 16th at 7PM at St. Gregory the Great Church, please contact the parish office. If we have enough interest, we may be able to rent a bus for transportation.

Other performances are offered on Wed., Aug. 14th, 7pm, Canisius College’s Marie Maday Theater / Thurs. Aug. 15th, 7pm, St. Francis High School’s Ormsby Theater Alumni Hall / Sat., Aug. 17th, 7pm, Niagara University’s Leary Theater. All Performances are free, but there will be a free will offering.
