The Masek Family 801-898-3821
A Man for Others study, we highlighted Kolbe's ability to see the positive side of every situation and his serene, humble acceptance of all things from the hand of God through the Immaculata. We discussed Niepokalanov's spiritual pillar of Eucharistic adoration and the strength that can be found in maintaining a joyful disposition. We will celebrate the 70th anniversary of his martyrdom with a class on Total Consecration and the Rite of Total Consecration on August 14th followed by a reception. We invited the Polish Catholic community and will provide the total consecration in English and Spanish.
