Peace and Contemplation
The Abbey Church is a centerpiece of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, an architectural beauty where all are welcome.
Built By Hand
Described as “Georgia’s most remarkable concrete building,” the Abbey Church was hand-built by the monks of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. Visitors are welcome to enter the building, participate in a service, or just admire the historically significant architecture and atmosphere of peace and calm.
The Central Part
The Abbey Church took the first monks 15 years to build, while they lived in a nearby barn. Today, the Church is a central part of the Monastery, which also includes a visitors center and museum, one of the largest privately-owned greenspaces in the metro-Atlanta area and a conservation burial ground offering green burials and natural cemeteries. You can visit the Monastic Heritage Center to learn more about the monks’ lives and history.
