We, the family of St Rafka Maronite Mission, joining together to praise our Savior Jesus Christ in the Maronite Catholic tradition, strive toward the common goal of establishing a permanent home by the building up of our Maronite Community for the greater west side of the Metro Detroit Area.
The family of St. Rafka Maronite Mission is a faith community that is focused to establishing and evangelizing the Maronite community of the west side of the Metro Detroit Area. The Maronite Church was established with the death of our patron, in whom our church is named after, St. Maron, in 410 AD. The Maronite Church has flourished for the last 1600 years in the Middle East, most notably in Lebanon and Syria, and the surrounding countries. This way of our worship, always in communion with the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, came to this country over 100 years ago.
We at St. Rafka Maronite Mission carry on in this faith in our world and in our communities. Evangelizing to those around us the truth of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, Christ established. We welcome you to join us in our Liturgy, partaking of the Eucharist, worshiping together with one voice, one faith, and as one body.
