A 1st Class relic of St. Charbel is currently touring the US. Already, one miracle has been attributed to the saint's intercession. It took place in AZ when a blind, Hispanic, Roman Catholic, Woman came to St. Joseph Maronite Catholic Church in Phoenix, to venerate the relic and ask for a blessing. Physicians have confirmed that there is no scientific explanation for the restoration of the woman's sight. You can read the article here.
We are Honored to have the Most Reverend Bishop Gregory Mansour Bishop of the Eparchy of Saint Maron of Brooklyn NY and the Most Reverend Bishop Edward Scharfenberger Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany NY, at my parish, St. Ann Maronite Catholic Church, on (SUNDAY MAY 8th at 10:00 AM) to celebrate the Divine Liturgy and bless us with the Relics of Saint Charbel. The Knights of Columbus will form a color guard and a reception will follow mass for an opportunity to meet both bishops. The relics will carried by the bishops in a procession around the church.
