Brother Maximilian Jaskowak, O.P., hails from Grove City, Pennsylvania, where his family attended the Church of the Beloved Disciple.  After high school, he entered St. Mark College Seminary at Gannon University, majoring in Philosophy.  Following graduation, he matriculated to Duquesne University, earning the M.A. in Theology.  While studying at Duquesne, he taught and coached at Kennedy Catholic High School in Western Pennsylvania, and served as the Youth Minister for his home parish.  “When I discovered the maternal presence of the Blessed Virgin Mary in her Order of Preachers, I aspired to enter the Order so as to enjoy her patronage and particular favor like Holy Father Dominic, Bl. Reginald of Orleans, St. Louis de Montfort, Bl. Bartolo Longo, and countless other Dominican men and women before me.  Through her mediation, I desire to preach Jesus Christ Crucified for the salvation of souls.”
