Authentic hand-made Lebanese food will be available for sale including Kibbee, Kafta, Beef and Chicken Shawarma (“Lebanese gyro”), Tabouli and Salata salads (Middle Eastern salads), stuffed grape leaves, hummus dip, homemade Middle Eastern mountain bread with zhatar seasoning, and fresh Lebanese pastries (e.g., baklawa, ghraybeh, nammuoora).
St. Ignatius of Antioch Maronite Catholic Church participates in Dayton events throughout the year. You can see us at:

Due to logistical concerns with corona we will be having a special outdoor liturgy (mass) at 9 am at our NEW CHURCH LOCATION. The Maronite Mass is an ancient Catholic prayer service using English and Syriac (a dialect of the language Jesus Christ and the apostles spoke). The service will also be livestreamed at facebook.com/DaytonPrays or stiparish.org

This will be at a different location than our festival, and will allow us smoother logistical control in meeting all Coronavirus requirements.
