Maronite Catholics and friends from the greater New York area will gather on Thursday, October 23, at the Archdiocese of New York Building (1011 First Avenue) for the Fifth Annual Benefit Dinner for the Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn. The evening will begin with a Cocktail Reception with hors d’oeuvres at 6:00pm, to be followed by Dinner at 7:30pm. Individual tickets cost $250 each. Table sponsorships are available at $5,000, $10,000 and $15,000. Additional donations are encouraged. Over 200 guests are expected.
Proceeds from the Benefit Dinner will be used to educate Seminarians, support poorer parishes and missions, make structural repairs to the Cathedral and assist retired priests. Bishop Gregory John Mansour stated, “I invite all of the faithful of the Eparchy, and every person of good will, to attend or support this year’s Benefit Dinner. Thank you and welcome!”
An added feature of this year’s Benefit Dinner is that it will honor Claire Habib, is a faithful and devoted member of the Maronite community in the New York area.
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.
