Founded in 1944 by a group of monks who practice self-sufficiency, cultivating their own food. This monastery is a place of solitude and peace in a noisy world—a protected sanctuary for spiritual renewal and reflection.

The monastery has a long tradition of welcoming those seeking respite in a peaceful environment. The monks spend much of their time in contemplation, searching for truth. This journey into solitude makes them well equipped to accompany others who have embarked on spiritual journeys.

This 2100-acre monastery is one of the largest tourist attractions in Rockdale County. Individuals of all faiths flock to the monastery; less than half of all visitors are Catholic.

With its beautiful, sprawling grounds, the monastery is a popular spot for picnics and daytime strolls, and is a frequent destination for tourists interested in the site’s history. The Monastery welcomes guests to experience a retreat for a day, or as long as a week, of restful recollection and spiritual renewal.

Amenities: Restrooms and Accessibility for mobility-impaired. Free admission and parking
