In Lebanon

No matter where he is, an Antonine monk always remembers his mission: to constantly remind the people that they are on a journey, a pilgrimage towards the Kingdom.
From the already established monasteries that are places for prayer and common fraternal life, the Antonine monks start their journey and embark in their mission, not only in all Lebanese regions, but they also go beyond the borders of the country.
Most of the monasteries of the Antonine Order were built or expanded by the monks themselves, as it shows in the documents preserved in the Historical Archives of the Order. As for the distribution of the monasteries among different regions, this constitutes a clear indicator of the objectives of the Order and its religious mission.


Saint Nohra    Saint Nohra Monastery
(Established in 1827, Patronal day: July 22)

 

The monastery of Saint Nohra  is located near the houses in the village, and yet it remains a place for prayer and a spiritual oasis for both visitors and the inhabitants of the region. The Antonine monks living therein provide pastoral services to the local Christian and religious communities, help the neighboring parishes, and fulfill some educational tasks.
