Fifty years ago a young bishop was assigned by Pope Paul VI as the first
Maronite bishop for the United States. He came not knowing what to
expect and was pleased to find an organized laity (National Apostolate of
Maronites) already working well with their clergy, a Maronite Seminary, the
first outside Lebanon, a Shrine to Our Lady, and clergy and laity hoping
for greater unity and progress. With persistent love, a broad and vibrant
vision of the Church, and untiring efforts and confidence in Our Lady and
Divine Providence, Archbishop Francis M. Zayek was able to gain the hearts
and minds of God’s people, and as they say, the rest is history!
Much has happened in fifty years. We are now two eparchies, 86 parishes
and a vibrant Church, much like the one envisioned by that young
missionary bishop fifty years ago.
On October 7, 2016 we hope to celebrate 50 years of a Maronite bishop in
the USA and consecrate ourselves in order to continue this noble mission.
We hope you can join us, and if not, please be one with us in prayer and
+ Gregory John Mansour
