    Actually the owner of MTV is Maronite Christian I believe. I know about Koura the area s practically run by Greek Orthodox. I thought of becoming Maronite but I didn't like the idea of becoming a Catholic in service to Rome.

    Pretty sure the Murr family is Orthodox. No matter.

    Maronites have been under Rome for a long time and in this day and age it does not benefit them. It has not benefited them in a long time.

    interesting sidebar, I took His Eminence, Metropolitan Ephraim of Tripoli on a tour of St Tikhon's a little while ago.

    Maronites were once aligned with the Byzantine empire and the Eastern Church once the Byzantines could no longer support them against the Muslims due to their own problems they turned to the Catholic Crusaders who in return for help asked for their alignment to the Catholic Church.

    Hello. I am an antiochian orthodox Christian living in Canada. There are plenty of churches in Lebanon and Syria depending on where you will move. The metropolitan of koura is sayedna Ephraim whom I highly suggest you speak to. I also suggest you read some books as well. If you have any questions I'll try and answer and I can speak to people I know here as well for you that know the priests in Lebanon more than myself.

    Thank you Anastasia! Yes I just joined the forum in search for some information which I will post as a question and came upon this question. God willing they will find what they are looking for.

    I'm probably going to move to Beirut since that where we always stay whenever we go to Lebanon since my grandmothers house is there. I'm planning on visiting Saint George Church the one in downtown right next to the Maronite Cathedral and the Blue Mosque.
