The Sanctuary Candle is the red candle next to the Tabernacle, which signifies the real presence of Christ within it. Parishioners can dedicate the Sanctuary Candle at our Corfu Site or at our East Pembroke Site in memory of a loved one, a saint or for a special intention for one week; the name will be published in the bulletin so that your intention can be prayed for by everyone during that time. Please call the parish office to schedule a week. A donation of $3.00 per lamp is suggested.

The 2022 Mass book is available and weekend Masses are filling up quickly.

A very special prayer practice that is offered at every Mass is a Mass Intention.  Intentions are offered for many reasons, for the living and the dead. Masses can be offered for birthdays, anniversaries, illness, special intentions and answered prayers. Consider remembering a loved one this upcoming year. If you are looking for a specific date for the Mass, 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.

We have new carpeting in the sanctuary in East Pembroke! If you haven’t seen it yet we will be moving back over to the church for Sunday Mass beginning May 30th so be sure to take a look!

Thank you so much to the parishioner that donated the money for the upgrade and to everyone that helped make it happen!

Thank you for your support of our St Max Chicken BBQ. We were able to pre-sell 587 dinners and the remaining 113 sold out at the door before we even opened! To all those who helped set-up, clean-up, purchased groceries and supplies, prepared and served the food, and purchased dinners – we offer our sincere gratitude.  A special thank you to our “Pit Crew” for another tasty BBQ. This was truly a team effort and together we raised over $3,700 to be used for the needs of the parish. We have a very special parish community. Thank you!

The BBQ Crew!
