What’s New

The 2020 and 2021 Mass books are available and weekend Masses are filling up quickly. Masses are offered for many reasons, not only for those who have died, but for those who are here with us as well. Masses can be offered for birthdays, anniversaries, illness and answered prayers. Consider remembering a loved one this upcoming year. If you are celebrating a significant Wedding Anniversary (25th, 50th, etc.), call soon to reserve your date so that it isn’t taken. Contact Sue or Cindy at the parish office ~ 599-4833; email us at stmaxkolbe09@gmail.com. A donation of $15 is suggested.

You are invited to be a part of the biggest Rosary Crusade in history to offset the sins of abortion, euthanasia, Satanism and the growing rate of drug addiction and suicide among young people – our nation desperately needs a supernatural solution.

At Fatima in 1917 the Blessed Mother told people to pray the rosary for world peace. On Saturday, October 10th at Noon thousands of Catholics will pray the rosary in a public place to stop America’s terrible moral decay. St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish will pray the Rosary in front of the Corfu Church along West Main Street. Please join us and pray for our Nation.

It’s time to begin preparing for this year’s lifelong faith formation classes. The first day of classes is Sunday, October 4th and we will be meeting each week from 9:45-10:45am. Whether you will be in-class or homeschooling, you are asked to please register as soon as possible. Registration forms have been mailed out but can also be found in the back of church or below.  If you have any questions, please contact Sister Barbara or Joey Neth through the parish office.

Are you, or is someone you know in need?

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is for anyone suffering from a grave illness, experiencing frailty due to age or about to undergo surgery.  If you are facing any of these conditions, don’t be afraid to receive Anointing of the Sick. This special sacrament was given by Christ to provide the grace and strength needed by those who are suffering, uniting them to His own Passion. If you will be having surgery, consider being anointed the weekend before your operation. When you come to Mass, ask Fr. Dan if he can anoint you then or call the parish office for an appointment. If someone is seriously ill and in need of a priest for anointing, please contact Fr. Dan at the parish office anytime (585) 599-4833.

Please contact the food pantry at (585) 599-6414 if you need assistance. Even if you just need temporary assistance during the pandemic, please give us a call. All requests are kept confidential.

The food pantry is in need of the following items:


Canned Fruit/Fruit Cups



Canned Mixed Vegetables (no corn or green beans please)



Health and body items (i.e. toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc.)

Any monetary donations can be sent to our parish office at 18 West Main Street, Corfu, or can be made online at the Corfu United Presbyterian Church site http://www.corfuchurch.org (please write ‘food pantry’ in the notes section).
