Colloquium

Colloquium is an opportunity for faith formation and celebrations for families. The Colloquium exists to strengthen, guide and assist parents and children to carry out their apostolic mission to give new birth to faith and life in the world. Parents find mutual support and learn to integrate their Catholic spirituality into their homes and families.

Home Shrine: All families are encouraged to erect a home shrine from whence a network of grace can effectively flow into their home.

Feast Days: Joyful and robust community celebrations of liturgical and saint feast days. All family members participate in these celebrations, so that our Catholic faith permeates the entire fabric of our lives.

Meetings: Colloquium meets one to two evenings per month at Our Lady’s Maronite Catholic Church or host family homes.
