Abbey Trades

The work of the monk is primarily to sing praises to God and to pray for the world. Meanwhile, the Rule of St. Benedict directs the monks to work for their living "by their own hands."


Our biscotti is soft and delicate, tastefully enhanced with generous portions of cherries, blueberries, cranberries, almonds, pecans and pistachio nuts. It is perfect for snacking or dunking with coffee, cappuccino, latte, tea or sweet wine.

The stained Glass Studios of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit have been in operation since 1957. Our first responsibility was the design and construction of the stained glass windows for our Abbey Church.

The Monastery of the Holy Spirit’s Bonsai Garden, Nursery and Abbey Garden Center provide a fun and educational experience for the whole family. Whether it’s shaping the tree or selecting a pot suitable to the beauty of the tree, everyone has the chance to create a masterpiece.

Nestled into more than 1,000 acres of permanently protected wetlands, streams and native hardwood forests, Honey Creek Woodlands is protected by a strong conservation easement and an endowment created from a portion of plot sales.
