St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church Alive in Christ January 2010 Update
A Campaign to serve the people of the Diocese of Orlando. www.bealiveinchrist.org/Home
Alive in Christ allows St. Max to construct a Parish Community Center “St. Max has first priority for a loan from the Diocese of Orlando. Over two dozen parishes have requests for loans from the Diocese to renovate churches, add classrooms to schools, put on a new roof, and other capital projects. They will have to wait. When the Diocese sells property in Viera this summer, St. Max is first in line to borrow the money it needs to build our Parish Community Center.” GROW in our living and loving relationship with Christ through the Eucharist. - 196 families have joined St Max in 2009. - 779 families belong to St Max. LEAD our brothers and sisters to Christ. - First communion, baptisms and lifelong faith formation. - Crown Ministry financial Bible study to deepen your communion with Christ. SHARE God’s abiding love and serve the common good. - 10% of the Sunday collection is for works of mercy and justice, such as building a middle school in the Dominican Republic. - Joint use agreement with Avalon Park.
Alive in Christ allows St. Max to pay for the rectory - The Diocese of Orlando loaned our parish $300,000 to buy the rectory at 4013 Alcott Circle in Avalon Park. - The rectory is where Fr. David lives -The rectory is also the parish office (saving tens of thousands of dollars in office rent) Alive in Christ allows St. Max to build up the Body of Christ - Catholic Campus Ministry at University of Central FL - Vocations and Blake Britton - San Pedro Retreat Center
