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.

The Antonine monks contributed largely in the socio-cultural development of the village of Haouche Hala and today, they are working hard to improve their educational mission in this region of the Bekaa through improving twinning their establishment with European institutions. In addition, they work at the service of the Maronite parish of Haouche Hala and provide a moral and spiritual accompaniment for the local population.
