Sponsored by the National Apostolate of Maronites

NAM Miami Flier #1-3

What is NAM?

The National Apostolate of Maronites (NAM) is the official lay apostolate of the Maronite Church of the USA. It┬áserves as a uniting “umbrella” for the Maronites spread all over the country and as a “bridge” uniting all Maronites across the USA.

NAM’s history is directly related to the immigration of Lebanese Maronites to the United States in the late 1800’s in their efforts to attain religious, political and economic freedom. Today, NAM recognizes and commemorates these past efforts by continuing to bring together Lebanese Maronites.

Having officially established itself in 1964, through its many programs of service to the Maronite Church, the apostolate helps nurture interest in our spiritual, cultural and ethnic roots. For many, NAM’s most important events are its national and regional conventions, where the Maronite Faithful are gathered along with our bishops and clergy for spiritual renewal, educational growth and social and ethnic fellowship.

NAM Conventions

The NAM Conventions have been an annual opportunity for the Maronite Church of the USA to gather together for spiritual renewal, education, and socializing. These conventions are sponsored by the apostolate and always hosted by one of our Maronite parishes.

This gathering will be a mixture of clergy and laity; young and old; Lebanese and American-born; and people of several other ethnic backgrounds who have become a part of the Maronite Church. The conventions have become family gatherings as well as vacation opportunities for many. The schedule is a full mix of prayer services, workshops and seminars, business meetings for both clergy and laity, and, of course, many evenings of fun and dancing to both American and Lebanese music. The NAM conventioneers enjoy socializing and “partying”, and enjoy the opportunity to visit with friends and relatives over good food and drink.
