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 Joseph    Saint Joseph Monastery
(Established in 1851, Patronal day: March 19)


The radiation of this monastery emanates from the pastoral services rendered in the region of Bhersaf and the neighboring towns, as well as the tangible commitment in the socio-cultural fields on one hand, and from the mission of the Antonine Community working at the service of the CERO on another hand.
