The Antonin Maronite Order (known also as Antonins or Mar Chaya Monks) is a monastic order among the Levantine Catholic Maronite Church, which from the beginning has been specifically a monastic Church. The order was founded on August 15, 1700, in the Monastery of Mar Chaya, Lebanon by Maronite Patriarch Gabriel Al Blouzani from Blaouza (1704-1705).

Its name comes from the Arabic Antouniyah (Arabic: الرهبنة الانطونية‎), Saint Anthony monks. They are also called Mar Chaaya monks (Arabic: رهبان مار شعيا‎), in reference to the monastery hosting the see of their superior general. It is one of the three Lebanese congregations of Saint Anthony the Great monks alongside the Baladites and Aleppians.
