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.
The Lord reminds us that we must always be vigilant and prepared for our encounter with him. At midnight, or at any time, He can ring at our door to invite us to receive the Lord.
Death does not make an appointment in advance. Thus «you know neither the day nor the hour» (Mt 25:13). Being vigilant does not mean living in fear and anguish. This means living with responsibility our lives as children of God, our lives of faith, hope and charity. The Lord continually awaits our constant and patient response of faith and love in the midst of our daily occupations and concerns that shape our future.
