Archbishop John Nienstedt and Msgr. Sharbel Maroun, pastor of St. Maron in Minneapolis, exchange greetings after a Divine Liturgy at the church Feb. 13 celebrating the feast day of St. Maron and the 1,600th anniversary of the saint’s death. The anniversary celebration included a dance the night before. A pilgrimage to Rome is set for Feb. 17 to 24 for the unveiling of a statue of St. Maron in the Vatican.
