About the Maronite Church
The Maronite Church is one of the oldest churches of Catholicism. It was led by Saint Maron, a priest (350-410 AD) who devotedly taught the Catholic faith, and ministered to many people with his gifts of healing and counsel. The followers of Maron emigrated from Syria to Lebanon, where the Maronite Church flourishes today. Today in the U.S.A. there are two eparchies (dioceses) made up of 85 parishes and institutions.
