Our goal as Maronite Servants of Christ the Light is to live the Gospel call of holiness. Inspired and sustained by a vowed life in community through prayer and joyful fraternity, the sisters are formed to serve the pastoral needs in the Church’s mission of the New Evangelization. We are called as servants of the Lord to radiate the light of His merciful love and hope through our witness and works of mercy.
The sisters live a contemplative prayer life centered on the Eucharist and devoted to Mary as their wholehearted response to God’s merciful love, and as a vital means to nourish them for community life and apostolic service. We live a Maronite liturgical spirituality and asceticism which includes periods of fasting. See “Maronite Faith” for more information on our Syriac Maronite Catholic worship and prayer in the Maronite Church.
The sisters serve alongside our priest in various ministries addressing the pastoral needs of our communities:
- Prayer and Penance for our people
- Religious Education & Formation
- Spiritual Direction, Retreats and Conferences
- Vocation Awareness and Promotion
- Youth & Young Adult Ministry
- Spiritual Support for Marriage and Family
- Visiting the Sick, the Dying, the Grieving
- Spiritual Pilgrimages
Maronite Servants of Christ the Light
- Maronite the Church we serve, sharing her rich spiritual heritage
- Servants in imitation of Mary who at the Annunciation called herself the “servant of the Lord”.
- Christ the Light as a pre-eminent image in our Eastern spirituality;
Christ enlightens and sanctifies our heart, radiating this love to the world through our communal life of sacrifice, prayer and service.
