The friars of the Sin-el-Fil community had always shared the desire to develop our presence in Lebanon. In 2007 they purchased a three-story building and land with the goal of turning it into a friary for the specific purpose of hosting candidates and providing for their initial formation as friars. The friary was inaugurated in 2010 and serves as the site of the postulancy.
Currently in progress are the construction of a church on the same property and the project for a hermitage on a property 2 km away, donated to the friars for this purpose.
