The Beautiful Monastery

The Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia, is a beautiful place. It’s a peaceful environment, perfect for an hour, a day, or a weekend (or, if you’re a single Catholic man sensing a vocation to religious life, for a lifetime) devoted to prayer and contemplation.

Here are a few photographs I took at the monastery this past Friday.

    Thank you for these pictures. I live in Florida and I would like to spend a weekend at this wonderful monastery someday.

    Well, do come! And when you do, stop by the Abbey Store and say hello — you won’t be the first person who reads this blog to stop by. If you want to learn more about retreats at the monastery, visit http://www.trappist.net/retreat.
