“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13


The Church officially remembers St Maximilian Kolbe, the Saint of Auschwitz, in August. However, it is fitting this school we to hear about this amazing man.


O Lord Jesus Christ, who said, “greater love than this no man has, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” through the example of St Maximilian Kolbe show us the path to true love. May our lives be lived for others.
