La cathédrale maronite de Brooklyn/ the Maronite cathedral in Brooklyn, NYC 🇫🇷 Saviez-vous qu’il existe une cathédrale maronite dans le quartier de Brooklyn à New York? Ses fenêtres et son grand mural de “Notre Dame de Harissa” sont l’oeuvre de l’artiste libanais Saliba Douaihy, venu à Brooklyn à la fin des années 1950. La porte de la cathédrale est elle composée de dix médaillons provenant du luxueux paquebot français le Normandie. L’établissement fait partie de l’Eglise Maronite depuis 1944 mais a été construit un siècle plus tôt. Il a été la première Église Néo-romane des Etats-Unis. En 1977, Notre Dame du Liban est devenue Cathédrale en raison de la réorganisation de l’Eparchie Maronite dans le pays. La communauté maronite de New York remonte aux années 1890. A Brooklyn, elle a principalement été formée par des maronites d’Alep en Syrie. Avec le temps, beaucoup de Libanais maronites vivant à Manhattan se sont installés à Brooklyn pour se rapprocher de l’Eglise. ----- 🇺🇸Did you know that there were a Maronite Cathedral in Brooklyn, NYC? Its doors showcase 10 medaillons coming from the the famed French luxury liner Normandie. And its windows and large mural of Our Lady of Harissa are the work of Lebanese artist Saliba Douaihy, who came to Brooklyn in the late 50s. The Church has been in the Maronite fold since 1944. But it was built a century earlier and was the first Romanesque Revival church in the USA. In 1977, due to the reorganization of the Maronite Eparchy in the US, Our Lady of Lebanon Church became a Cathedral. The Maronite community in New York dates back to 1890. In Brooklyn, the community was initially formed mainly by maronites from Aleppo, Syria. Over time, many Manhattan Maronites, who were predominantly from Lebanon, relocated to Brooklyn to be closer to the Church. #Liban #Lebanon #USA #EtatsUnis #Maronite #diaspora #religion #NYC #NewYork #expats #Eglise #Cathedral #cathedrale #lebaneseinusa #harrissa #notredame #libanaismaronites
