One of the original Saints of the Church...Maron is most likely a derivative of Marion....I believe if my memory serves me MAron was a hermit Monk in Lebanon and revitalized the church ...It is one of the churches that speak Aramaic, the original language of early Christians and Jesus.

Then is there much difference between that religion and that of the Chaldeans of Syria or Iraq?

I believe that they are similar...there are Maronite's in Syria and Israel/Palestine. But got to remember there were so many off shoots of early Chritians in the region. The Maronite's aligned themselves with Rome for help in the 1800's during a civil war that ultimately lead to immigration to the USA.

I will get some research this week and get back to yah. I do know that Maronite's turned to Rome early on for protection and France was in charge of them. In Syria and Palestine/Israel there were Christian towns of Maronite's and similar faiths... One big Mosaic of original Christian churches in the region. Many moved and settled in USA and Australia.

I think St Maron and St Sharbel are the two most popular Lebanese saints. Isn't the church at Kercheval and St Jean ?

I meant I thought there was another site for St. Maron/Sharbel forums.
My Brother is a Chor Bishop for the Maronite rite.

I remember when St. Maron's was built...must have been in the early Sixties. I went to school with a lot of Lebanese kids (their last names were Joseph, Michaels, Simon)at St. Ambrose,and they were all excited that they finally had church of their own. I always wondered why their last names sounded like first names. Any clues?
