About Our Council
Saint Sharbel Council was founded in 2000 through the efforts of Past District Deputy Rafael Acosta, Grand Knight Nabil Salem and the support of Past State Deputy / Supreme Director Dennis Stoddard . It is named after Saint Sharbel, a saint from Lebanon. The Saint Sharbel Council  works closely with the parishes of Our Lady of Lebanon (Maronite Catholic) and Saint Jude (Melkite Catholic) in Miami, providing support and assistance for various projects.

On April 27th, 2000, a first degree exemplification was conducted at the parish hall of Our Lady of Lebanon in Miami. Subsequently, more members were initiated and as soon as the required number was attained, a charter of institution was applied for by 35 members, the majority were new, others transferred from other councils. On May 8th, 2000, Saint Sharbel’s birthday, a charter was granted by the Supreme Office. Nabil Salem was elected as the first grand knight and Father Michael Thomas(1) became the first chaplain.

(1) since then, he was elevated to Monsignor and recently appointed Vicar General for the Eparchy of St Maron of Brooklyn, New York.
