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.


48th Annual National Maronite Convention

The 2011 Maronite Convention was hosted by Saint Sharbel Church in Philadelphia, PA. It attracted a large number of Maronites from all over the country and is believed to be one of the most attended conventions. Our two sisters Marie Madeleine and Cosette along with Sister Dominique Halabi, who is visiting from Lebanon, were able to join this Maronite gathering. They were glad to see many of the clergy, reunite with old friends, meet new ones, tour briefly in the city and participate in the prayerful and social gatherings planned for the event.
