St. Antonious Fraternity is one of the oldest fraternities in our church. It is a pious fraternity of over 200 ladies who meet every Tuesday to attend morning Mass and discuss a spiritual subject. The fraternity is divided to 6 age groups; each group has a leader, and they have special activities such as visiting sick members of their group as well as participating in ladies’ special occasions. The members of the fraternity are responsible for cleaning the church twice a week, they also do entertaining and social activities from time to time in addition to working with the summer camp. St. Antonious is an active fraternity whose identity is mostly based on prayer and approaching God. After all these years of hearing the words of God, worship, and prayer it was good to try a new experience, which is participation in the Gospel during Lent in order to make this Lenten process a whole, continuous and fertile period full of grace. These gospel participations help the participant to listen carefully to the word of God, meditate and hear what God wants to tell her. Sharing the word of God with others not only helps the participant to replenish her heart but also it affects the hearts of everyone who shares this experience with her. On Tuesday 25 of February, the first week of Lent, 141 ladies shared in the first Gospel meeting. To begin, Father Ibrahim Alsabagh explained the main steps of meditation and participation of a Gospel text, then the groups met individually to continue. Most of the ladies said that they felt it was a very special experience they got, both for the spirit and soul, helping them to achieve better knowledge of themselves. They were able to express themselves freely in an organized fraternal atmosphere. This participation also helps the approach among the ladies in the fraternity.
