The Maronite Servants of Christ the Light were in Washington D.C. from Wednesday, May 25th to Sunday May 29th for music classes at our Maronite Seminary with Fr. Geoffrey Abdallah, rector.
The Maronite Divine Praises (the Maronite Liturgy of the Hours) is currently under review in Lebanon. At present, several of hymns, psalm tones and chants have been completed and translated into English. We are still awaiting the final version of the full text. As Maronite Servant Sisters, we pray the Maronite Divine Praises three times a day (morning, evening and night).
Fr. Geoffrey taught us several of the new hymns, tones, chants and melodies to be sung during Morning and Evening Prayer across the Maronite Liturgical seasons. We extend our warmest thanks to Fr. Geoffrey for giving us his time and expertise to teach us.
On Sunday, May 29th, following Divine Liturgy at Our Lady of Lebanon, the Sisters participated in a Holy Hour with the parish for vocations to priestly and religious life. It was a great blessing to pray with our parishioners, who so often pray for us.
