Established over 30 years ago, the Maronite Catholic Society is an incorporated Maronite organisation with an utmost concern to assist the Eparchy in promoting our Maronite tradition and heritage.
The Maronite Catholic Society works alongside of the Maronite Bishop to fulfil the Eparchy’s vision at all levels, be it, to sow the Maronite spirit in the minds and hearts of the upcoming generations.
The Society works:
On the Lebanese level, in fostering vital links with the cultural roots of our ancestors.
On the Australian level, in nurturing inculturation of Maronite values into the Australian society,
And on the Eastern level, in encouraging dialogue with the other Eastern Churches.
The Society’s patronage to Diocesan events and activities is a sign of its members’ passion to their tradition and their eagerness to perpetuate their Maronite faith.
On 19 July 2013, under the patronage of His Excellency Bishop Antoine-Charbel Tarabay, the Maronite Catholic Society Incorporated Association established the Maronite Catholic Society Youth (MCSY).
The MCSY is committed to achieving its mission, which is to assist the Eparchy in developing awareness of the Maronite identity and promoting our Maronite heritage amongst the youth.
We aim to achieve this by:
1. Strengthening the relationship between Maronites in Australia, Lebanon and around the world
2. Promoting social unity and networking amongst Maronites
3. Encouraging a stronger political awareness amongst Maronite youth to promote values which will enrich Australian society.
4. Developing awareness of the Maronite identity.
