Maronite  Patriarchal Exarchate of Jerusalem, Jordan and Palestine

.

Founded in April 1895 by the future Patriarch Elias Houayyek, the Exarchate presently depends on the Maronite Patriarch H.B. Pierre Bishara El Ray in Bkerkeh, Lebanon. Since 1945, it had jurisdiction over the Maronites in Jordan. The residence in Jerusalem was partially restored in 1976 by Msgr. A. Harfouche, part of it serving as a center for pilgrims (Saint Maron Guesthouse), and part of it, with a multi-purpose hall for young people and parishioners, serving the needs of the Patriarchal Vicariate.  The work of restoration was completed in the year 2001.  That same year, the premises were expanded by the purchase of an adjacent house and the construction of a residence for the Exarch.
