Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers

Located less than an hour from Atlanta, the Monastery of the Holy Spirit has been home to a community of monks for decades. The monastery is open to public retreats where guests can spend their time in silence or attend daily prayers like lectio divina and Eucharist. There are both planned retreats with themes and those organized individually, including accommodations, meals and access to the grounds for a suggested donation.

In response to COVID-19, the monastery's retreat center is closed and will reopen when the Abbey Church is opened for liturgical services in early 2022. However, the center is offering virtual retreats using Zoom.
