Beloved Parishioners and Friends of St. Maron,

Christ Is Risen! I can hear you saying, "He Is Truly Risen!"

" Blessed are we who have not seen and have believed" said Jesus about us. The Resurrection is the most powerful and glorious event in existence. Millions have died for this Truth and to keep the faith shining and to pass it on to others. Without the Resurrection there would be no Christianity and we would be still living in total darkness and captive to sin and death. By his Death Jesus had destroyed death and gave us a new life. How blessed we are to be part of this mystery that God has bestowed on us through His Son Jesus.

I petition God to lavishly shower His abundant grace upon you and your loved ones so that you may experience the power of His love and the gifts of resurrection. Let us petition Him on behalf of His Church to guard us and shield us from all harm and evil.

I thank God for each and every one of you for your commitment to your faith and for your dedication to your church. Life can be very busy and challenging; I urge you to make it a priority with your family to attend church regularly to worship God and give Him thanks for all that he bestows upon you.

Keep your children connected to their roots and be their model and inspiration in living your Christian vocation faithfully.

Be assured of my continuous prayers for you and I ask you to remember me in your prayers. If I can be of any help at any time please feel free to contact me.

Happy Easter!

In Christ’s Hope,
Chorbishop sharbel Maroun

To be Saint

Our Maronite Church recently received some joyful news!

His Holiness Pope Francis has authorized the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints to promulgate the beatification of the Servant of God Estephan El Doueihy, Patriarch of Antioch of the Maronite Church (1670-1704). This decree will pave the way to his beatification, which will be held in Lebanon in the upcoming months.

Let us pray that through his intercession, our loving God will shower His choicest blessings upon our Maronite Church in Lebanon and the world.

God blesses those who come to the aid of the poor and rebukes those who turn away from them: "Give to him who begs from you, do not refuse him who would borrow from you"; "you received without pay, give without pay." It is by what they have done for the poor that Jesus Christ will recognize his chosen ones. When "the poor have the good news preached to them," it is the sign of Christ's presence.

Continue bringing food and items for FOOD SHELVES and gently-used clothing, household supplies (paper goods, cleaning items), new baby items (diapers, clothing, formula, food, blankets, etc.), and new school supplies. Let’s bring throughout winter. Jackets, mittens, scarves, socks, hats and boots also if you have them to share.

Whatever gets unused in your closets can be deeply appreciated and well-used by the needy. For any large items to donate, please contact Joannie 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 abouna@stmaron.com

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.
