Hometown of the founder of monasticism in the world has no Christians or Church

It was surprising that Qemn Arous village, the hometown of the founder of monasticism in the world, St. Anthony, has no Christians or Churches. 

This is true since the last three Christian families have recently left the village as they had no church to pray. 
 
However, the land of St. Anthony still carries his name though he sold it hundreds of years ago and distributed the money for the poor.
