  • Welcome to Saint Maximilian Kolbe!



    OUR PARISH MISSION
    We are the Christian Community of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, a Catholic parish of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Embracing our many and diverse gifts, we are united in Christ Jesus. Challenged by the teachings of Our Lord, and inspired by the example of our Patron, we strive to serve God, and to minister to others, in prayer, sacrament, faith formation, and charity.
  • "Let Me Help" 2016-2019

    We are asking for everyone's help, asking each of us to model our patron saint, St. Maximilian Kolbe, who points to himself and says "Let Me Help". We are working hard to eliminate our parish debt by the year 2019. We must continue to make  our monthly loan payments, to eliminate this debt. Being free from this debt will enable us to renovate, build, grow and invite others to join us on our faith journey. Our love for Jesus Christ in the Eucharist unites us all on this journey.
    We hope you and your family have received by now, the St. Maximilian Kolbe Church photo book. It shows the beauty in and around our amazing parish campus and church. You may also download a copy here.
    We pray this will inspire us to see, feel and honor, our history and our growth through the years, as a loving Catholic Community of faith. If you have not already made your pledge to help with the debt, we ask you to please prayerfully consider this. For more information, please contact us in the parish office, as we are here to serve! (281) 955-7324.
    Below is a video of Fr. John Kha Tran's homily, the weekend of November 13th, as we began our "Let Me Help, Clear Our Debt" program.
