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.

In addition to the monastic life which comprises both work in the land and prayer, the Antonine monks of this monastery undertake pastoral services in the region of North Lebanon, in addition to the fact that the monastery receives different Christian groups and movements for spiritual retreats and applies its pastoral mission in local religious communities and parishes.
