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 NAM Convention

The Midwest Regional NAM Convention held on November 18, 19, 20, 2011 was sponsored by Saint Maron Parish in Youngstown, Ohio. We were very happy and blessed to be part of this Maronite gathering as we joined the participants in the Ramsho and Safro prayers as well as in the spiritual reflections by Father Claude Franklin of New Castle, PA and Father Tony Massad of Cleveland, OH. On saturday afternoon, we opened our house to welcome the youths and guests who visited the National Shrine of Our Lady Of Lebanon next door. Then in the evening, we attended the special dinner and hafli prepared for the occasion. Congratulations to Joe and Rosa Calabria who received the Silver Massabki Award, and to Zachary Zidian on receiving the Faith of the Mountain Award presented during the celebration. All who attended agreed that it was indeed an enjoyable and productive weekend.
