All Are Welcome
St. George Maronite Church is a parish of the Syriac Maronite Patriarchal Church of Antioch, a self-governing Eastern Catholic Church in full communion with the Pope of Rome, Benedict XVI. We are the only Eastern Catholic Church in San Antonio. All Catholics share the same faith yet Eastern Catholics express that faith though their own various Traditions. Maronites have their own hierarchy and clergy (bishops, priests, and deacons), operate under a separate Code of Canon Law called the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches, and have both a different liturgical calendar and lectionary.
For answers to some commonly asked questions about our church, visit the Question and Answers (Q&A) link on your left.
This web site has been designed to provide all who are interested in the Maronite community of St. George a place to gain valuable information about our culture, traditions, and activities.
We invite everyone to come worship with us this Saturday or Sunday and see the richness and beauty of the Maronite Qurbono (Mass). All Catholics may fulfill their Sunday obligation with us.
