Il has been planned to meet, on the whole, the principles of the Cistercian Monastery, where there is a strict relation between the harmony of spaces and the life led in it, in order to allow the community a life of unity for praying, working, welcoming.

The building is anyway foreseen
in several steps according to the effective possibilities and will match the community development.

A preliminary phase

The stage A and its annexes aims to allow:
- the sisters moving to Azeir where they can start living the monastic life according to the Rule of Saint Benedict.
- the possibility of a small welcoming activity in structures that are both complete and totally simple.

Annexed structures are planned around the main building called the “Small Monastery” (Monasterino). We specify the temporary and final destination of each of these structures; it will be given when the true and really monastery, or, at least, the first block will be built.

The building time for the first and second block will be linked in fund raising.

The total cost for this phase  is of Euros 496.000,00
(according to data related to Ottober 2009.)

These estimates were made before the global economic crisis. During the last months the cost of the living has increased in Syria too. Therefore we foresee an appreciable increase of the estimated expenses.

The “Small Monastery”


This will be the first structure to be built.
Its estimated cost is about
€ 235.000,00.
When this monastery will be built, it will become a welcoming centre for those who want to share moments of prayer, silence with the Community.
