Every month, generous parishioners at St. Max sponsor a food drive for local charities, helping to stock the emergency food cupboards in our area. May’s drive will be in conjunction with the yearly Manna Canned Food Collection of the Archdiocese. Food will still go to our local charity, at St. Agnes Day Room. Many struggling families and individuals turn to the emergency food cupboards for support during times of crisis. Their lives are blessed by the generosity of the faithful of our parish. Items in greatest need are beef stew, tuna fish, fruit, vegetables, pasta, soups and baked beans. Manna Bags will be distributed at all of our Masses on the weekend of April 28-29, 2018. Kindly return your filled Manna Bags on May 5th & 6th, 2018 and they will be taken to the St. Agnes Day Room. We thank you for your generosity.
Dear Parishioners, Please note below a change in our schedule of Masses & Confession for all Saturdays throughout the year. In parishes where the Vigil Mass of Sunday was moved to 4:00pm, Mass attendance has increased. This is my sincere hope. Parishes that have Confessions on Saturday mornings have reported an increase in the celebration of this Sacrament. In order to keep time open for funerals it is necessary to change the Saturday morning Mass to 8:00am. Confessions will be 8:30 - 9:30am. I hope this schedule will prove helpful to you in the ongoing practice of our faith. This schedule will become effective on Saturday, November 25, 2017. Msgr. Carroll
