A Post-Pandemic Message - Relief for Lebanon

The Maronite Bishops around the World are waging a constant campaign of support and relief for our brothers and sisters in distress in Lebanon, the country of origin for the majority of the families in our church community. They are urging the Maronite communities around the world to show whatever support available by sending their donations to Caritas-Lebanon, the major Catholic charity in Lebanon and the Middle East. Every penny counts. Lebanon is affected by a dramatic economic situation and is still under economic siege. People are facing a 100 years ago WW1 famine and starvation style crisis, topped by the pandemic. Responding to this call, Holy Family Church continues to send support to Caritas-Lebanon through the Maronite Eparchy in Saint Louis. If you can, you may send your checks to Holy Family with the notation: Caritas-Lebanon. Thank you for your support to your Maronite brothers and sister in Lebanon, where the last Christian strong-hold of the Middle East is still surviving in dignity. Prayers are always a very effective way of support and they are powerful.
