Monks of the Brothers of the Cross - Nuns of the Sisters of Jesus Crucified Mary and Jesus Cross Lebanon Christian



After Beatitude the Patriarch Mar Beshara Boutros El-Rahy, when he was the Maronite bishop in Jbeil (Byblos) signed the official document on September 26, 2006, for affecting the real estate No. 1417 – Edde – Jbeil to the Brothers of the Cross and the Sisters of Jesus Crucified, which Saint Simon El Aamoudi Religious Estates (Machhalan) handed over. Both Orders started the building project under Father Hanna Khadra with the help of benefactors, relying on God’s care and the intercession of our Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of all Graces.

Anything to be built on the said real estate shall be used by the Order of the Sisters of Jesus Crucified.

1- A large church named after the Father of All People.

2- The first convent for nuns, named Blessed Virgin Mary clothed with the sun and Bride of the Holy Spirit.

3- A wing for guests.

4- A center called Holy Child Jesus of Prague, served by nuns within their apostolic life, to educate and bring up children on ethical and Christian principles, to live with the support of Church’s sacraments and to focus on the importance of family life, on obeying and respecting parents and clergy and civil laws. The center will hold an estimated one hundred children, and render these services on a free basis

5- A tower for a cross, on the bottom of which there is a shrine called Jesus Crucified.

After the monks have finished work on the property intended for the nuns, they shall attempt to build a monastery for themselves called The Divine Word, along with a free center for spiritual exercises called The Holy Spirit, and a church called Mary Our Lady of Guadalupe and Bride of the Holy Spirit. All this shall be built on the land which, thanks to God, the Divine Providence shall later bestow on them.

On the third Sunday of each month, a general meeting shall be held for all souls called to devote themselves to God, and for those with religious vocations asking to join either Order, with the coordination of the General Advisor Father Hanna Khadra and under the care of His Lordship Bishop Becharra El Raai, at the provisional center for the nuns at Saint Simon El Aamoudy – Machhalan, 5 kms far from Jbeil.
