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    Transfiguration Monastery and Saint Joseph Technical School
(Established in 1990, Patronal day: August 6)


The Maronite order was established in Marjeyoun at the service of the local parish and since then, it worked on building a monastery and founding a technical school in order to educate and train the Lebanese youth of South Lebanon. Meanwhile, the Antonine monks continue providing pastoral services in the parishes, schools, and religious communities in the neighborhood.
