The National Apostolate of Maronites (NAM) has been in existence since 1964, and has sponsored a national convention each year since then. NAM is the official organization of the laity, serving the Maronite Church in the United States. The NAM Conventions have been an annual opportunity for the Maronite Church of the USA to gather together for spiritual renewal, education, and socializing. These conventions are sponsored by the Apostolate and always hosted by one of our Maronite parishes. 
 
The upcoming convention is the 53rd National Convention, July 6 to 10, 2016, hosted by Our Lady of Lebanon Church, San Francisco, CA (Click here for details).
 
Our Parish of St. Anthony of Padua, in Cincinnati, hosted a Regional and the National Convention in 1991. 
 
Our Parish has had a NAM Chapter since 1980, one of the few chapters in the nation.
 
Meetings are held on a quarterly basis.
