  • the Maronite forum organised by and attended by the Patriarch, Bishops from various diocese across the Middle East and male and female youth from various Maronite Diocese across the world.
  • the survey to explore youth’s view on how the Maronite Church operates in a changing world and understand Maronite’s youth identity outside of Lebanon and in a changing world.

Surveys were conducted at the beginning of the Forum and at the end of the 3 Day Forum.
