Parish Short History

Saint Elias Maronite Catholic Church was established in 1910 in order to serve a growing population of people (primarily from what is now the country of Lebanon and others from the Middle East countries) who had immigrated to Birmingham.

The church belongs to the Maronite Rite, which evolved from the Antiochene Tradition of Catholicism. The patron saint of the church is St. Elias (or Elijah, the Old-Testament prophet) who is depicted in the stained glass window behind the altar.
Maronite Catholics practice their ancestral Rite, yet maintain the same essentials as other Rites of the Roman Catholic Church and has consistently maintained its bonds with Rome and the Holy See.

The Maronites have their own Patriarch and Bishops and ancient traditions which include the use of Aramaic (the language of Christ) in its liturgy.

There was no church in Birmingham in which these Catholics could worship God according to their Rite and these rich traditions.
