After months of hard work and dedication, Our Lady of Lebanon Church completed the renovation of the church hall, a large facility that accommodates five hundred, in addition to the parish offices and new classrooms for religious education and a fully equipped kitchen.
After the Divine Liturgy, Bishop Gregory Mansour blessed the hall, congratulated the parish community for their steadfast support of their priest, and urged them to continue working for the upcoming NAM convention to be held last week of June 2019 in Miami.
Father Elie Saade, the pastor, thanked several prominent members of the community for showing extraordinary zeal of involvement in developing the project
A plaque was also presented to Mr. Saba Maroun, the owner of Mona Lisa Construction, for executing the job in a timely and efficient manner.
The parish also presented a surprise plaque to Father Elie in recognition for the sacrifices he made and for making project such a priority in his daily life.
