What is the Maronite Catholic Church?
The Maronite Eastern Catholic Church, one of the five Syriac-speaking Churches within the Catholic Communion of Churches, is that Catholic Community that follows its own version of the Antiochene West Syriac Rite and lives out the message of the Gospel of Jesus in the spirit and memory of St. Maron, hermit and monk of the 4th/5th century A.D. (CYT, Chapter 8)
