My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to the parish website of St. Jude Maronite Catholic Church in Orlando, Florida. We are one of the 22 Eastern Rite churches in union with the Holy Father, Pope Francis and celebrate the Divine Liturgy (Mass) according to the ancient tradition started by our founder, St. Maron, who died in 410 AD. Please take a few moments to look around our site to see the activities in which we are involved and click on the links to read our Bulletin and discover further information about the Maronite Church and the Eparchy (Diocese) of St. Maron, Brooklyn, to which we belong. We are a small, family church and so you can be sure of a warm welcome whether you join us or simply visit us while on vacation.

We hope to see you soon. Wishing you every blessing.
Peace of Christ,
Father Bassam M. Saade, D. Min.
