BECOME A MARONITE
The Maronite Church is open to anyone who wishes to follow Christ in the apostolic Faith, and who wishes to embrace the Gospel in the traditions of the ancient Church of Antioch. This is not a Church closed by ethnicity, nation, or origin; it is Catholic and open to all seekers.
Although Catholic in doctrine, and in communion with Rome, we live the Antiochene-Syriac tradition in the expression of the one, apostolic, orthodox, and ancient faith. This Church originates in Antioch, where the disciples of Christ were first called “Christians.” Finding its origin especially in the plains of Syria, among the Aramaean peoples, developing through the apostolic center of Edessa, it is what was once historically known as “Jewish Christianity.”
All are welcome to embrace the life-giving Light in this healing tradition.
