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 Nohra El Kanzouh    Saint Nohra El Kanzouh Monastery
(Established in 1864, Patronal day: July 22)


The presence of the Antonine monks in Fatka is a sort of life testimony highlighting prayer and work in the monastery. People suffering diseases in their eyes come in pilgrimage to this place asking Mar Nohra, patron of the vision, for recovery. In fact, several recoveries prove His work. The monastery includes the international school Adma International School where the Antonine community provides catechism and spiritual animation.
