Infrastructures of the Latin Patriarchate

The Rameh Parish was first established in 1913 by Fr. Zephyren Biever from Luxemburg. A Rosary Sisters’ school was also established in the same year. In 1927, a small chapel and a residence for the parish priest and the sisters were built. The current church was established in 1959 by Patriarch Alberto Gori. Several priests have served in the parish throughout the years.
