The Beatitudes in Lebanon

The Community of the Beatitudes was founded in Lebanon in the early '80s. The community built its residence, a retreat center, and a church overlooking the Mediterranean, one hour from Beirut. The four priests, three religious sisters, and two consecrated lay sisters collaborate with a movement of young lay associates in ministries of evangelization, formation, healing, garden chores, and disaster relief. Most members and friends know English, however among themselves, the members pray in and speak Arabic and French. 

A Typical Week

 

Days will involve service, liturgies, meals and talks with the community and an hour of adoration. Fr. Joseph Karam, director of the mission, will coordinate several excursions for pilgrimage, manual service, recreation, and encounters with people and culture.

Security and Safety

Community members or friends will pick up the young Americans at the airport and take them directly to the community. Day-to-day security risks in Lebanon are probably not worse than in Europe, despite the history of warfare and the difficult economic situation. However, click here what the U.S. Embassy reports.
