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.

Notre Dame du Secours    Monastery and Parish of Notre Dame du Secours
(Established in 1828, Patronal day: August 15)


The Antonine monks devote themselves to the service of the Maronite parish of N.D. du Secours in the region of Aley, while providing the local community with pastoral and spiritual accompaniment, as well as pastoral services in several villages of the region. This monastery is also a privileged place of convivial dialogue between the different religions of the region.
