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.

When some people in the crowd ridiculed the believers as drunk, Peter explained that a momentous time had arrived in salvation history, a time when God was now calling not only Jews but “all people” (Acts 2:17) to a life of the Spirit in His kingdom.
In the epistle for this week, the apostle Paul explained the radical implications of this. Just as the human body is one body with many parts, so too the Christian community draws people from every language and nation to form a single family. In this new community of the Spirit, Paul writes, “we were all baptized by one Spirit—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were given the one Spirit to drink” (1 Corinthians 12:13).
