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 built by hand 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 by hand, while they lived in a nearby barn. Today, the Church is a central part of the Monastery, which also includes one of the largest privately-owned greenspaces in the metro-Atlanta area. You can visit the Monastic Heritage Center to learn more about the monks’ lives and history.
