St. George Maronite Center Welcomes You to Your Event
From your first glimpse of domed roofs peeking through the Live Oaks as you roll onto campus, you may be struck by the strong sense of place the Maronite Community Center instantly inspires. A few hundred feet brings you to the picturesque St. George Maronite Church, with its tall narrow stained glass windows inset in the bright white walls at just the right angle to dazzle you with color and light at the last hours of the day. If you are lucky enough to visit at twilight, you may get to walk along the rows of arches that lead away from the church, past the elegant sunken courtyard, to the manicured garden and water fountain sheltering in a stand of Live Oak trees.
The St. George Maronite Center supports a large Lebanese community in San Antonio and the Church is available for all manner of Christian weddings, should you like to get married in a beautiful intimate church and then have the reception of your dreams just a few steps away!
At night, the buildings are beautifully lit with the intent of inviting your guests inside. The many doors and crystal chandelier twinkling from the high ceiling hint at the scale of this venue, and of the elegant evening you have in store. But it’s still not enough to prepare you for row upon row of artfully arranged tables and chairs, draped and decorated with your wishes in mind.
Carefully lit niches along the walls echo the arch motif without overwhelming the room. And recessed lighting highlights the floral table settings while maintaining the ambiance. If you are like us, you can’t help but take in the whole scene in the grand ballroom and feel that powerful sense that finally, you have arrived!

The Phoenician at St. George Maronite Center
The Grand Ballroom Perfectly Sized & Styled for San Antonio
The Phoenician is a Grand Ballroom perfectly sized and styled to fill a void in San Antonio’s premier event venues. Many venues in our class are limited to 350 guests. We can comfortably accommodate up to 550 with a full-sized elevated stage and a full sized dance floor in place or up to 1,000 theater style! Have fewer guests? No problem, we can easily arrange the room to fit the size and style of your party. We’ll make sure you have ample access to the room before and after your event at no extra charge.
Large halls sometimes suffer from that warehouse feeling that style has been sacrificed for space. The Phoenician features elegant lighting, drapes, and architectural details like high tiered ceilings and niches with arches atop up-lit columns. These subtle details make the space approachable because the décor provides an aesthetic reason for the scale of the room. Long-story-short, you and your guests will be delighted with the space and ready to enjoy your one-of-a-kind event!
St. George Maronite Center is pleased to offer everything you need for your small or large event, with-or-without catering. Options include Non-Alcoholic Drink Stations or Full Bar Service.
