Maronite Enrichment Days

The Maronite Seminary is finally ready to re-open its doors and to welcome you once again to its yearly event, the Maronite Enrichment Days, which has evolved into a venue for continuing education for clergy and laity.

From Tuesday, April 26, until Friday, April 28, 2022, Msgr. Peter Azar, Fr. Armando Elkhoury, and the seminarians are eager to host you. We are excited to inform you that the preparations for these days are underway.

Dr. Jeanne-Nicole Mellon Saint-Laurent, a professor at Marquette University, and Fr. Claude Franklin have accepted our invitations to be the main guest speakers at this year’s in-person Maronite Enrichment Days event.

For planning purposes, the organizers ask you kindly to register online ASAP but no later than Friday, April 20, 2022. There is no fee associated with registration.

The organizers have secured the rate of $129.00 at the Courtyard by Marriott until April 8, 2022. You may book your hotel room online at the Courtyard By Marriott or by calling (301) 589-4899 (Rate Code: Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Seminary). The hotel is a mile away and provides a shuttle service to the Maronite Seminary.

The organizers ask priests who wish to concelebrate at the Divine Mysteries to bring their Jibbehs and stoles.

Deacons and Subdeacons who want to serve at these celebrations should bring their albs and stoles.

Please share this information with others. We wish you a blessed Season of Great Lent. We look forward to seeing you in person in April.

Sincerely yours,

Msgr. Peter Azar and Fr. Armando Elkhoury
