Owner description: Visitors are welcome year-round to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, the inspirational home of Georgia’s Trappist Monks. With more than 2,300 acres of contemplative space, the Monastery is less than an hour from Atlanta’s international airport. The new Monastic Heritage Center – a 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-­art museum – is educational, interactive and kid-friendly. There is also a bonsai garden, store and cafe. At the Abbey Gift Shop, which is the largest Christian bookstore in Georgia, visitors can purchase monk-made biscotti, fruitcake and fudge, all of which the monks sell in an effort to be self-sustaining and feed the local poor. You can also see the Norman Gothic architecture of the Abbey Church and take a quiet stroll along the lake, or spend time in prayer and meditation.

The Garden Shop and the Museum Shop are both absolutely beautiful. I have found many gifts there, and I love the jewelry and soap that supports children in other countries. Such great causes, and I love the idea that something small that I use every day can help someone else!

This is a unique place where we like to take out of town visitors. It is very close to where we live. A couple of years ago they had a major addition to the monastery which was built in the early part of the previous century. They have a wonderful gift shop, bonzi facility, and visitors center with a movie showing scenes from the building of the facility to the present time.

Went to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, GA to get a Mass Card for the mother of friends. While I was there, I stumbled onto the most delicious biscotti. I think they were homemade. Scrumptious!
