HEALING MASS WITH RELICS OF SAINT SHARBEL
The 22nd of the month holds a special significance in the life of the Maronite Catholic Church with devotion to Saint Sharbel Makhlouf. In Lebanon and throughout the world, hundreds and thousands of people gather on the 22nd to commemorate the anniversary of the miraculous healing of Nohad El Shami on January 22, 1993 through this Saint’s divine surgical intervention. This year marks the 26th anniversary of this miracle!
As we continue our devotion to Saint Sharbel on the 22nd of every month, a Healing Mass with the Relics of Saint Sharbel will be celebrated as scheduled on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 6 PM with Bishop A. Elias Zaidan, Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon Los Angeles!
We are pleased to receive His Eminence Gabriel Issa, Ambassador of Lebanon for the United States, on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. A reception in his honor will follow the Divine Liturgy.
Additionally, we are honored to receive The Consul General of Lebanon in Detroit, Mrs. Suzan Mouzi, who will also share in our festivities.
Please keep our beloved Patriarch Rai in your prayers for healing.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Chorbishop Alfred Badawi - Pastor
