Silver and Gold Massabki Award Recipients

The highest honors bestowed on NAM members are the Silver and Gold Massabki Awards, which are presented annually. These awards are named after three martyred Maronite Brothers of Damascus, Francis, Abdel Mohti and Raphael, who refused to renounce their faith. The awards are bestowed on members of the apostolate who have contributed extraordinarily of their time, talent, and treasure on a parish, regional or national level.

The silver Massabki Award is given on the parish level, while the prestigious Gold Massabki Award is given on national level (one per Eparchy) to one individual or a married couple and is always presented at the national convention.
