The newly built Maronite Parish Hall part of Baabdath New Church is nested in the heart of the town of Baabdath. Conceived with the latest acoustic techniques, it can host up to 500 guests all seated comfortably on individual seats. Thanks to the Baabdath Maronite Parish, the hall is home for les Musicales de Baabdath during the concerts period.
