Holy Family Holy Name School – New Bedford

On Tuesday, September 22, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light visited the local Catholic school Holy Family Holy Name in New Bedford.
Miss Krystal Moujabber, 5th grade teacher, invited Sr. Therese Maria to give a presentation on His Holiness, Pope Francis, in honor of his visit to the United States.  Sr. Therese Maria showed the children a brief animation on the life of Pope Francis, which highlighted his birth, his calling first as a priest, then as a bishop and cardinal, and then, his election as the Pontiff and Bishop of Rome.
The children were able to learn some fun facts about Pope Francis, like how much he loves soccer and his favorite team is of course Argentina, particularly, San Lorenzo. But more than that, Sr. Therese Maria highlighted the Pope’s spirituality, particularly, his emphasis on mercy and outreach to the poor, the forgotten, the outcasts, the dejected, and the downtrodden. The children were able to learn how Pope Francis truly exemplifies Christ in radiating the Lord’s goodness and joy.

Please join us in praying for the Pope, his safety and the success of his mission as he makes his way around the United States.   


Maronite Servants’ Open House

The Maronite Servants of Christ the Light hosted an Open House on Sunday, September 12, 2015 from 2:00PM to 5:00PM in celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life. In calling for this year, Pope Francis is counting on religious “to wake up the world” by their radical witness of Gospel living and Christ’s merciful compassion.
The Sisters were pleased to welcome over 70 guests to our convent in Dartmouth for a presentation on religious life, refreshments, and the cake cutting to celebrate Sr. Therese Maria’s graduation from Boston College with an MA in Pastoral Ministry.
Our guests were first introduced to our Chapel of Saint Maron, which was the highlight of our tour, and of course, the best room in the house as our program stated.  Then they proceeded to the sunroom, which was set up as a display area featuring a video, and powerpoint presentation, where Sr. Therese Maria explained our Maronite Servant mission.  After this, our guests then walked down to our Kadisha Shrine and prayer area, where they offered a decade of the Rosary for the intention of vocations.
Dedicated volunteers served refreshments in our outdoor area where our friends could sit back and enjoy each other’s company.  We invite you to visit us.  Please call and arrange for a visit or a day of retreat on 508/996-1753.

“Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.” —Pope Francis
