Post Benefit Dinner Press Release
Maronite Catholics and friends from New York and beyond gathered on Thursday, October 23, 2014, at the Archdiocese of New York Building for the Fifth Annual Benefit Dinner for the Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn. The event raised funds for the Eparchy and featured a beautiful ceremony honoring Claire Habib. Over 180 guests attended.
Proceeds from the Benefit Dinner will be used to educate Seminarians, support poorer parishes, make structural repairs to the Cathedral and assist retired priests.
A special feature of this year’s Benefit Dinner was that it honored Claire Habib, who is a faithful and devoted member of the Maronite community in the New York area. Bishop Mansour presented the Claire with a beautiful picture of Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral in Brooklyn.
Donations in connection with the Benefit Dinner are being accepted through December 15 and may be made online or mailed to the Eparchy’s offices at 109 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201. Bishop Gregory stated “I invite all members of the faithful throughout the Eparchy to support this Benefit Dinner and the good works it will do.”
The Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn comprises 43 parishes, a Seminary, a Convent, a Monastery and the Maronite faithful in 16 states located along the East Coast of the United States from Maine to Florida. It is directly under the jurisdiction of Pope Francis.
