Mother of the Light Convent

On Sunday September 28, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light opened the doors of their temporary convent, a guest house on the grounds of the Daughters of Saint Paul Provincialate in Boston. The Daughters were most hospitable and generous in providing the use of this house to assist the Maronite Servants as they seek to purchase a permanent residence.
After prayer and consideration, Sister Marla Marie desired the name of the convent to reflect both the image of light and that of our Catholic devotion to Mary. The name, “Mother of the Light” was chosen. It was with great joy that the Blessed Sacrament was reserved in the convent Chapel by Fr. Dominique Hanna of Our Lady of the Cedars Church in Boston. The Chapel, dedicated to St Maron, founder of the Maronites, expresses the significance of preserving and the living out of our Maronite heritage.
