Our thanks and gratitude go out to all the members of the St. Rafka Club for hosting and sponsoring the Annual Saint Maron’s Dinner andHafli. It was an amazing party and a great opportunity to work together for our community and to unite parishioners and friends on the occasion of the 116th Anniversary of our parish.
Very special thanks go out to Ferial Rahal, who chaired the event, and to Carmen Tanachian, who chaired the food, and to every member and parishioner who helped to make this event a great success. May the Lord God bless you and reward you, through the intercession of St. Maron, with health and peace.
Our Lent begins this year with Ash Monday, March 4th and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 21st. Ash Monday Liturgies will
be at 10:00am & 7:00pm.
Here are the Lent Regulations
All those who have reached their 14th birthday are to abstain from eating meat on Ash Monday & on all Fridays of Lent. Fasting should be from midnight until noon. Of course you are all encourage to also fast & do other acts of penance on the other days during Lent, especially Fridays. There are plenty works of charity & you can help by doing your share of compassion & mercy. Most important do good things instead of just giving up some food…
Have a blessed Lent.
Confession during Lent
You are encouraged to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation during this season of Lent. Catholics must go to confession at least once a year and as often as they need it in order to cleanse themselves of sins and be in a state of grace.
Our beloved Bishop Elias Zaidan will be paying a pastoral visit to our parish on Sunday, March 17 at the 10:15AM Liturgy.
There will be a ParishFamily lunch sponsored by Ray J’s Restaurant and the Jacob family, to support the Eparchy Campaign during this 25th Anniversary of our Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles. A $13 per person donation to the campaign is suggested.
Please plan to attend and celebrate with us this special milestone.
Happy Anniversary to all of us.
