Ecclesall Woods

Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.

In Ecclesall, our class saint is Saint Maximilian Kolbe. St. Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish priest who volunteered to die in the place of a stranger he met in Auschwitz concentration camp. St. Maximilian Kolbe feast day is the 14th of August.
