St. Jacob Baradeus Nuns Order

In the year 1990, Late Lamented Patriarch Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas established the Order of St. Jacob Baradaeus for nuns and renovated St. Aphrem’s Clerical building in Atshanneh, Lebanon for the new order. Then he built a branch for the nuns at St. Aphrem’s in Maarat Saydnaya. In 2002, the third branch of this order was opened in Baghdad, Iraq.

Currently, the nuns are residing at their monastery in Atchaneh where some help in the administration of the Orphanage and the Old Age House at the Patriarchal Benevolent Institutions in Atchaneh.
