Beloved Parishioners and Friends of St. Maron's,

Peace and love to all of you with the hope that you are well with your family and loved ones.

As we celebrate Father’s Day this month, we give thanks to God for the gift of fatherhood.

Gratitude and glory go to our Heavenly Father for sending His Only Son our Lord Jesus to save us from sin and give us a new life. I would like to thank all fathers for their gift of love and dedication to their families. We pray that Saint Joseph, the foster father of Jesus our Lord, may be an inspiration and a model to guide them in leading their families to Jesus' heart, and to be their protector and a shining light to lead them to a deep relationship with Jesus our Lord. Children honor your father and mother and pray for them that they may carry their vocation in a spirit of love and holiness.

On Sunday June 11th we will be having the 18th Northeast Eucharistic Procession. This Eucharistic Procession started in our community 18 years ago and it has grown through the grace of God. The procession with hundreds of people will begin at Holy Cross and we will walk to seven churches and will end up in our hall for refreshment. I highly encourage you and your family to join us on June 11 at 3pm as we honor and worship our Lord and witness to him with faith and hope. The church in the United States is called all of us to a Eucharistic Revival. This is the best way to show our love and commitment to Jesus our Lord and God. Please come with your family and friends and join us for this holy walk.

For our youth who are preparing themselves to go to the National Conference in Canton Ohio, we offer our prayers and support and hope that they will come back refreshed and rejuvenated. For those who will be attending the National Maronite Convention (NAM) in Providence, Rhode Island, we wish them also joy and happiness at this very special event.

As many of you prepare to go on your summer vacation domestically or internationally we send our warmest wishes and prayers asking the Lord God to bless you abundantly. Travel safe and may you find joy and peace with your loved ones. Please keep in mind your brothers and sisters in Minnesota and keep them in your prayers.

May the Lord Guide you and protect you with every step you take in your life.

Devotedly yours,

Chorbishop sharbel Maroun

"The grateful community of Ascension parish wrote to our community:  "Thanks so much for the donations of clothing, books, and toys this past December. Many families here on the Northside had a joyful and warm Christmas due to your generosity of spirit and material items! We are grateful for this partnership and the opportunity to steward the abundance that is shared with us."

"For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
I was naked and you clothed me,
I was sick and you visited me,
I was in prison and you came to me"…
"Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the
least of these my brothers, you did it to me." 
Matthew 25:34-40
Continue bringing food and items for FOOD
SHELVES and gently-used clothing. If you
have larger items, please call Joan Moses.
Thank you for your generosity!

Adopting a family in Lebanon

Our Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles is aiming to sponsor 250 families in Lebanon. We have the names of 10 families that our parish is aiming to sponsor. The basic cost to support these families is $75 - $100 per family. We have a description of each family. If you are able, and would like to adopt one of these families for the year, please contact the parish office, or email Fr. Sharbel at
May the Lord God bless you to continue being a blessing to others, and may God help the people of Lebanon who are suffering on all levels in their country.
