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.

It is by faith that we touch Jesus Christ, it is by faith that we see him. To manifest the faith of this woman who touches him, Jesus said: «I felt that a virtue had come out of me», evidence that the divinity is not enclosed in the narrow bounds of human nature, and in the prison of the body, but that its eternal power overflows in-beyond the limits of our weak nature. It is not by an act of human power that the people of the Gentiles are delivered; it is the grace of God that unites all the nations who, by a still imperfect faith, incline eternal mercy to it.
So if we are to obtain our healing, let us touch by faith the edge of the garment of Jesus Christ, no one can touch it without it knowing it. Blessed is he who touches the least part of the Word, for who can understand it all?
