Justice Boutros Noujaim, one of the sons of Maasser El Chouf, oversaw the construction of St. Michael’s convent across from St. Michael’s church. After its completion in the 1960s, the “Salvatoriennes” nuns presided over the convent and established it as one of the few educational institutions in the region at the time.
Following the Lebanese civil war, with the help of attorney Charles Noujaim and the committee members of St. Michael’s church, the convent was renovated.
Today Auberge St. Michael’s remains a center of shared living, unity, social and community service in Maasser.
