The Last Goodbye

I am leaving home and leaving hearts off I go to other parts.
My heart will cry and mourn not for separation was it born.
I go to start a life anew there I will remember you.
A farewell is death to me of smiles I no longer see.
But in this act of leaving you, is revealed a mystery true.
Love is not just for years, so set aside the earthly tears.
Of all the proofs of God I know, love is that to which I go.
The heart knows forever only what once is joined will not turn lonely.
Love is for eternity no simpler truth can ever be.
Heaven is the hearts home nowhere else it longs to roam.
Every time I say goodbye my heart yells, “I die, I die.”
Every time I go away my heart cries, “why can’t we stay?”
In our faith’s great mystery love endures eternally.

Please be Respectful in your Summer Attire

Summer is here, and along with that comes the desire to dress more casually.

We do request that you dress appropriately while attending the Liturgy at St. Maron during the summer months. The church and chapel are air-conditioned and comfortable, so we ask all men and women, do not wear shorts or tank tops (especially spaghetti straps) or flip flops.

Thank You!

Beginning with Liturgy at 12:00 noon at the Chapel, followed by a wonderful afternoon of activities, good food, and lots of great fun.
This is an excellent time also to meet each other and put a name with a  face of the people you see at Liturgy each week.
We are asking for volunteers to help us make this the best Parish Picnic to date.  There are three ways to volunteer:
1. Set up at 10:30 am
2. Serving beginning at 1:00 pm
3. Clean-up at 6:00 pm
If you are able to volunteer a little of your time, please contact Claire Naoum
We also want to encourage you and your family to stop by for a visit around the beautiful outdoor statue of St. Charbel here in Independence.  It is a great way to pray and reflect and bring him your joys, sorrows and challenges.
$5 donation includes food, drinks, and entertainment!  Please bring a dessert to share!
See you at the picnic!
