Lebanese Food Festival Oct. 4-6 at Our Lady of Lebanon in Lewis-patch September 5, 2013Posted by tantamergo in Admin, awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, fun, General Catholic, Liturgy, Virtue.
That’s what my old boss Mike “Ma” Guy used to call it……..Lewis-patch. Back when TI had their AGM-88 HARM missile factory out there, he used to have to go, and Lewisville wasn’t much back then.
My realtor David Ross turned me onto Lebanese food, and it’s very, very good. Unsurprisingly, you’ll find strong influences of all manner of Mediterranean cooking, as well as Mideast and even Indian influences.
Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite parish in Lewisville is hosting their annual Lebanese Food Festival Oct. 4-6 at the parish. Fri and Sat the festival runs from 11 am to 11 pm, and on Sunday from 10:30 to 4. There will be Lebanese music and dancing, cooking demonstrations, live performances, and of course a large smorgasbord of Lebanese food. Admission is free, as is parking, but I don’t know what is charged for the food. Nonetheless, it’s for a good cause, to support the Our Lady of Lebanon parish.
And, if you’re looking for a very beautiful, reverent form of the Mass, but for whatever reason don’t cotton to the TLM or feel its too far, you might want to try the Maronite Rite at Our Lady of Lebanon. It’s an Eastern Catholic Rite fully in union with the Holy See (and always has been), so it has many trappings of Eastern Liturgy, but it 100% satisfies your Sunday obligation. I know a number of local Catholics who value a more reverent and traditional Liturgy occasionally assist at the Maronite Rite.
