The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: like a cedar of Lebanon shall he grow. (Psalm 92: 12)
For almost 125 years Saint Maron’s Maronite Catholic Church has served men and women who emigrated to the United States from Lebanon as well as the generations of their descendants in bringing them closer to the love of Jesus Christ. St. Maron’s is a community built upon faith and love. In addition to our Lebanese families we are proud as a parish to boast that we are truly the pride of South Philadelphia in that our parish family consists also of faithful men and women who are not of Lebanese decent, but rather men and women who have been attracted to the spirituality and traditions of our Maronite Rite.
I welcome you to visit our church and participate in our Divine Liturgy on Sunday at 11:00AM. Our Divine Liturgy is one of our most prized possessions as Maronites and we wish to share it with you.
It is my hope and prayer that you will find the information in this website helpful in learning about our parish community which serves families throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. Whether you are a long-time parishioner, a new member interested in becoming more involved in our parish, or someone discerning whether to join our community, I invite you to look more closely at the faith community of St.Maron’s Maronite Catholic Church.
Your Brother in Christ,
Fr. Vincent Farhat
