St. Maron Feast Day
Join us on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at the 11:00 AM liturgy as we begin our St. Maron’s Feast Day celebration. There will be a special blessing for the church officers during the 11:00 AM liturgy. A luncheon hosted by the Parish Council will follow at the MCC to honor the 2017 Silver Massabki, Faith of the Mountain, St George Appreciation Award Recipients, and other awards.
The following weekend, on Saturday, February 17, 2018 the celebration will continue with the St. Maron’s Day Hafli. Ticket prices are in the bulletin and on sale after all weekend liturgies or at the church office.
Second Collection for Eparchial Charities
There will be a second collection on Sunday, January 28 for Eparchial Charities. The Eparchy receives many requests from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to assist others. The Eparchy has always limited the second collections not to burden our faithful. The Eparchial Charities Collection will allow the Eparchy to contribute to the most in need causes served by the USCCB.
Our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Elvira Mery, a lifelong member of our parish. Elvira passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
Funeral services will take place at St. George Maronite Church on Tuesday, January 30, 2018. A rosary will be held at 10:00 AM, followed by the Liturgy. There will a mercy meal after the liturgy, and the burial will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.
The family will receive visitors on Monday, January 29, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at her home.
Grant her rest O Lord and may your perpetual light shine upon her. Amen.
