Prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, and Faith Formation


We promote devotion to Jesus Christ, the Living God,
present in the Holy Eucharist. Consecrated to Mary,
fortified through prayer, the sacraments and daily
faith formation, we witness our love for Christ,
one another and our Roman Catholic faith.

The Kolbe Eucharistic Apostolate is under the patronage of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Maximilian Kolbe.


The KOLBE EUCHARISTIC APOSTOLATE originated in 1996 in the form of the monthly Kolbe Eucharistic Mini-Retreats held at St. Brigid's Parish, Toronto, under the patronage of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Maximilian Kolbe. The Quo Vadis Prayer Group (1995) also offered a more intimate gathering for Kolbe members. In 2006 the Apostolate began offering faith formation and catechesis classes with the Know Your Faith Series which deal with scripture or pertinent topics of our Roman Catholic faith, always faithful to the Magisterium. Due to the sudden death through cancer of the Kolbe Apostolate's main foundress - Maria De Manche (August 15, 2016), and other unforeseen events, the Eucharistic Mini-Retreats have temporarily stopped. However, the 'Know Your Faith' series continues to grow under the spiritual assistance of Fr. Charles Anang (our spiritual advisor from St. Augustine's Seminary) and the kind patronage of the parish pastors of Holy Cross and Blessed Trinity Parishes.
