Mystery of Initiation (Baptism)
Arrangements for Baptism and Confirmation must be made six (6) weeks in advance. Children should be baptized within forty (40) days after birth according to our Maronite Tradition. Godparents must be practicing Catholics and must present a letter of recommendation from their pastor if they do not belong to Our Lady of the Cedars of Lebanon Church. Parishioners who do not worship regularly at our parish will be denied the privilege of being sponsors for the Mysteries of Initiation.
Mystery of Crowning (Marriage)
Arrangements for Marriage must be made at least one (1) year in advance. A Baptismal Certificate dated no older than six (6) months before the ceremony must be provided. Couple intending to contract Marriage in the Church must make the Pre-Cana Conferences or their equivalent and present a certificate of completion.
Since the Affidavit of Freedom to Marry must be obtained from the Office of the Bishop in Brooklyn, New York, parishioners or residents who plan to get married outside of the United States of America must contact the Pastor six (6) months before they travel. This grace period should allow enough time for the approval to return from the Chancery.
