Our parish has been the center of Maronite spiritual and cultural activity in Scranton since
its founding in 1903, and remains a vibrant community committed to worship of God in the
ancient Syro-Maronite Antiochene Rite, which originated in Antioch
where Saint Peter was the first Bishop, and which still preserves its ancient roots
with the use of Syriac (Aramaic) for the most sacred parts of the Eucharistic Liturgy.
