Welcome to Our Lady of Peace Parish – Calgary Maronite Catholic Church

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.

  1. Peter was well aware of his weakness. He did not forget that a few days before, he had denied Jesus three times in the high priest’s court. His answer has nothing to do with his presumptuous reaction at the last meal with Jesus: “Even if I must die with you, no, I will not deny you” Mt 26:35. Peter can only respond humbly: “Lord, you know everything, you know well that I love you”. It seems to me that each one of us can only humbly repeat Peter’s response, since we are so aware of the weakness of our love for God.
    We note that Jesus does not give any instructions concerning the task entrusted to Peter. He simply adds two things. The first is that the mission he has entrusted to him is difficult: to love the truth risks leading to rejection, misunderstanding or even hatred and, behind the image of those who lead Peter to the place where he would not go, the persecution that Jesus himself suffered, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too”, Jn 15:20.
