Welcome to MAX Studios at the University of St. Thomas-Houston. Our goal is to bring you fresh monthly content and conversations, all through a Catholic lens. We approach our content with the perspective of a missionary encountering the culture. We aim to highlight the diversity of the Catholic Faith Tradition and introduce others to the person of Jesus Christ through truth, goodness and beauty. We are animated by our namesake St. Maximilian Kolbe.
