Fr. Dan will host our first Movie and Discussion Night at St. Max! On Monday, November 12th and Monday, November 19th at 6:30PM, we will be showing Clare and FrancisBoth born in Assisi, St. Clare and St. Francis decide to leave behind their lives of luxury to follow Jesus Christ. This drama follows their attempts to live out the Gospel by working with the poor and establishing their own religious orders. An inspiring story of courage and commitment, this historically accurate epic was shot on location in Italy and features special behind-the-scenes footage. (2007)

The movie will be shown on the big screen at the Social Hall. Feel free to bring whatever will make you comfortable, a lawn chair, blanket, pillows. After the movie we will have discussion and coffee.

Operation St. Nicholas is again looking for donations of a staple or food item that they desperately need to help fill the baskets for Christmas for our local families in need. We know this is early, however, the collection of all necessary items is a long process, and if we start now, we hopefully will have full baskets for those less fortunate than ourselves for the holidays. You may leave your donation in the baskets that will be located near the entrance of either church November 24th – December 2nd.

As Thanksgiving is quickly drawing near and we take time to be thankful for all we have, help us to remember those who are not as fortunate. Please have your donated item placed in the box by December 2ndThank you for your generosity!

St. Maximilian Kolbe Grief Support Group will begin meeting again in the spring.

Sharing loss and grief will help us begin to understand and heal. Please feel free to call Peggy Mead at (585) 502-5416 any time if a one-on-one is needed or if you want to “just talk”.
