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.

Upon the request of Patriarch Paul Massad in 1850, the Antonine Order started serving the Parish of Notre Dame de la Delivrance at Mina, in the suburbs of Tripoli. Meanwhile, the Antonine monks working in Mina region fulfilled an educational mission in favor of all families in the region, regardless of their religions or confessions and they started with opening a semi free school which grew to become a modern school abiding by the international criteria.
