The Order of Saint Sharbel

 
The Order provides financial support to seminarians of the Maronite Church in the United States.  The Maronite Church is an Eastern Catholic Church which is in union with the Holy Father in Rome.  The Maronite Church in the United States is divided into two eparchies (dioceses), the Eparchy of St. Maron of Brooklyn (the eastern U.S.) and the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles (western).  Our seminarians study at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Seminary in Washington, D.C. (www.maroniteseminary.org).   The seminary celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011, and continues to play a vital role in the education of our priests for the 21st century.
