Kolbe Learning Center (Primary School)

St Maximilian Kolbe (8 January 1894 – 14 August 1941), also known as the “Apostle of Consecration to Mary,” was born Raymund Kolbe. He was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar who founded the Immaculata movement devoted to Our Lady. While imprisoned by the Nazis, he volunteered to die in place of a stranger (a husband and father), in the Auschwitz concentration camp of Poland where he was martyred. His feast day is on 14 August.
