Bible Verse of the Day

Our History

Holy Family Maronite Church is an Eastern Catholic Church.

* We belong to the large communion of Churches that constitute the Universal Catholic Church. Within this communion of Churches, there are 22 Eastern Catholic Churches (Maronite, Melkite, Ukrainian, etc.) and one Western Catholic Church (the Roman Catholic Church).

* In the Eastern Churches, we are a part of the Syriac-speaking Churches that have flourished in the Patriarchate of Antioch, founded by Peter, Head of the Apostles.

* St. Maron the hermit (410 A.D.), who lived in Apamea, Syria, is the patron Saint of our Church. Hence "Maronite," the name of our Church.

* The Maronite community started as a monastic community in the Monastery of St Maron on the Orontes river in Syria, but considerably grew and sought refuge from persecution in the Mountains of Lebanon.

 * St John Maron was our first Patriarch (707 A.D.) and resided in Kfarhay, Lebanon.

* We pride ourselves on being one of the few Churches preserving the Language of Christ (Aramaic) in our Divine Liturgy.
