MINISTRIES & COMMITTEES

OUR APOSTOLATE IS DOING THE WORK OF GOD AND GLORIFYING HIS MOST HOLY NAME,
THROUGH PRAYER AND WORK

*Our Committees are agents of peace and promoters of unity, Divine Mercy and Justice. They are committed, obedient and humble servers to Christ and his Holy Catholic and Apostolic church, in particular the Maronite Tradition, and true friends to all.

*Our Committees are new apostles of evangelization. Yet most of all they are called to be living examples of Faith, Hope and Love.

*Our Committees are never exclusive. they are only examples who actively invite others to full commitment to Church and heroic faith.  Therefore they constantly learn and always invite others to proclaim the Gospel of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. They do this counting on the Love of God the Father, the Grace of the Only Begotten Son and the Communion and indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

*Our Committees study, promote and practice the teachings of the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. Namely Its Magisterium, its decrees and councils’ constitutions and declarations, its liturgy and canons, and its Catechism of the Catholic Faith and Maronite Tradition.

*Our Committees trust in the intercession of Our Lady Mother of God, Mother of the Church, Mother of Divine Mercy and Sea of Wisdom. They call upon the intercession of Saint Rafka called: “the Apostle of Suffering”, “the sixth wound of Christ” for the sake of redemption.

*Our Committees seek to honor God, the Church and the communion of the saints through leading a life of prayer  especially the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist, through good deeds,  healthy conduct, and learned words made of good and spiritual wisdom.  

*Our Church Ministries and Committees are people who with others lead all to “hear the Word of God and Obey it.” (Luke 11: 28).

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Luke 10: 1-2)
