Following the words of Jesus and the example of Saint Anthony the Great,
we, the Antonine Sisters, leave everything behind to follow God, our sole treasure.
The life that we received from God we give back to Him through service and devotion.
Like Mary, the first consecrated woman, we live joyfully to proclaim the greatness of the Lord
who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.


Regional Maronite Youth Workshop

The Antonine Sisters assisted with the Regional Youth Workshop hosted by Saint Maron Parish in Youngstown, from February 12 through the 14th. The workshop, which was directed by Fr. Gary George, CSsR, was a healthy combination of spiritual and fun activites and discussions. The theme was centered on five values: unity, faith, trust, courage and respect, which are indispensable for the spiritual growth of today's young people. The sisters participated in prayer and group sessions throughout the weekend, and prepared the noon meal on Saturday.


February 9: The Feast of Saint Maron

"St. Maroun, born in the middle of the 4th century in Syria, was a priest who later became a hermit, retiring to a mountain in the Taurus range in the region of Cyrrhus, near Antioch. His holiness and miracles attracted many followers, and drew attention throughout the empire. Maroun is considered the Father of the spiritual and monastic movement now called the Maronite Catholic Church." (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Happy Feastday to all the Maronite Catholics across the world.
