Welcome to Our Lady of Peace Maronite Catholic Parish of Calgary!
Our Lady of Peace was established to serve the Maronite Christian community of Calgary. We are a Christ-centered community, building a healthy congregation, committed to serving the spiritual needs of all Christian sects in our community.
The Maronite Catholic Church is one of the Syriac Eastern Catholic churches. It grew from the Maronite Spiritual Movement that was founded by Saint Maroun. Saint Maroun was known for his missionary work, healing and miracles, and teachings of a monastic devotion to God.
This icon unites two events – Elizabeth in her home carrying her new-born son, surrounded by midwives and neighbors; Zachariah writing the name “John” in front of two of his friends. In the miniatures of the British Library 7170 and the Vaticanus Syriacus 559, the second event is only represented. We have added the lighted lamp in front of the sun, the symbol of the Baptist in front of Christ, According to the Syriac liturgical texts.
