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.


Farewell Sr. Celine & Sr. Nancy

After serving 12 years at the Antonine Sisters Adult Day Care, at St. Maron Church in Youngstown and at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon, Sr. Celine was assigned to go back to Lebanon to continue her ministry at a clinic in Northern Lebanon.

Sr. Nancy also has just graduated from Ursuline College in Cleveland with a Master's degree in education administration and leaves to Lebanon to serve in one of the Antonine Sisters Schools near Beirut.

We wish Sr. Celine and Sr. Nancy all the best in their new ministries and thank God for their presence with us and we assure them of our love and prayers.

Christmas 2012

"You have united O Lord your divinity with our humanity and our humanity with your divinity..."

We rejoice as we celebrate your birth and pray through the intercession of your mother Mary and Joseph your Chosen One to give each one of us a heart ready to love like you. Give us peace in our hearts, in our families, in our communities and in our world.
