    Meet Our Pastor: Monsignor Sharbel   

Monsignor Sharbel Maroun
January 6, 1989 - Present

On the Mediterranean sea, Sharbel-Ghattas Maroun was born in Jal-El-Deeb, a coastal town a few miles north of Beirut.  He is the sixth of a family of seven children.  After completing his high school studies in Lebanon, he worked as a computer operator at Credit Libanais Bank for a few years before coming to the United States to continue his studies in Computer Science.  Throughout his life, he received many signs from God calling him to the Priesthood.

In September 1984, he entered the Maronite Seminary in Washington, D.C.  He spent close to five years and graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy and an M.A. in Theology.  He was ordained to the holy Priesthood on his birthday, January 6th, 1989 in Lebanon.  His first assignment was as an associate pastor at St. Anthony Church in Danbury, CT.  After serving there for six months, he was appointed Pastor of Saint Maron Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota where he presently leads our congregation of 290 families to a better relationship with Christ.  On January 6th 2007, he was elevated to the rank of Monsignor.

Monsignor Sharbel is a source of inspiration to our parishioners.   In his Piousness, Love and Devotion, he serves our community diligently and tirelessly.  His impeccable behavior sets a good example for our children and we are so proud to have him among us.
