Additional observations St. John Maron Church began in 1988 as a mission of Our Lady of Mt. Lebanon-St. Peter Los Angeles. It is part of the Maronite Catholic Eparchy (diocese) of Our Lady of Lebanon. It is under the authority of Bishop Elias Zaidan, and is in communion with the Holy Father. The mission has since celebrated its liturgy at different locations since its founding; Fr. Bakh became administrator of the mission in 1989. It became a parish in 1999.
