The Maronite Christian Formation Program is a program that consists of classes that begin at the preschool level and continue up to the 8th grade. It is a Faith Of the Mountain program that teaches students about their Maronite heritage and all the saints that came from the Maronite Church. It also prepares kids from pre-kindergarten to 1st Grade for their first communion in 2nd Grade where all communicants ready themselves for receiving their first reconciliation with Jesus up to receiving their first communion, the body and blood of Christ. In our program we have activities throughout the season from student mass to food drives to Christmas parties, Christmas plays, and other planned activities, we have a capable staff of volunteers and aides who dedicated themselves for the program with the help and guidance of our Priest Father Peter Karam. As we carry on in our mission we ask the good Lord to bless us and help us and give us the wisdom to do the right thing. Sincerely, Maroun Kattar and Henid Harb
