St Joseph Maronite Catholic Church was established in 1997 through the efforts of a small group of Maronite Catholics. Prior to 1997, the Maronite Catholic Church in Phoenix did not exist. Up to this time, Maronite’s worshipped at various Roman Catholic parishes around town. Once a month, a Maronite priest would travel to Phoenix to perform Mass in the Easter Rite tradition. This small group of Maronite’s organized and together raised the funds to purchase an old Baptist Church that was for sale.
Upon purchasing the church, the Maronite’s cleaned up the property and made modifications to the interior of the church to convert it into a proper Catholic Church with an Eastern Rite Altar. Once established, the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon assigned a Maronite priest to the newly created parish.
Since then, the parish has grown and established numerous programs and events to promote the Maronite faith and Lebanese culture. The American Lebanese Festival, held on the first weekend of November is now in its 17th year and is a Phoenix mainstay of cultural events. The church has one of the best religious education programs in the diocese and maintains cultural ties through its traditional Lebanese Dance called Dabke.
St Joseph, in 2016, was designated a pilgrimage destination church by the Bishop A. Elias Zaidan of the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles. In March 2017, his Excellency dedicated the largest shrine of St Sharbel in North America. We welcome everyone to come join us in worship and pray or meditate at the Shrine of St Sharbel that is open year-round 24 hours a day.
