We are committed to building a culture of life and a civilization of love in every Maronite parish.
Trusting in God’s love and relying on the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we want to help you realize how precious you are in God's sight and draw you closer to Christ. Driven by this purpose, the Office of Family and Sanctity of Life's mission is to serve parishes and families, so that families may answer their call to holiness and become the ‘domestic church’ rooted in Christ. We aim to provide programs that prepare and enrich engaged and married couples, educate, support and strengthen families, affirm chastity and bring healing and hope to those suffering from losses, illnesses, miscarriage, infertility, the aftermath of abortion, etc.. We seek to bring the teachings of the Catholic Church concerning ethical issues (contraception, euthanasia, abortion, etc.) to all the faithful, to help them understand and embrace it. Under the direction of the Bishop, the Office of Family and Sanctity of Life coordinates with all the parishes of the Eparchy of Saint Maron to proclaim the Gospel of Life and affirm the dignity of every human person through prayer, education, outreach, and public policy in order to defend and inspire a culture of life.
