Plan Your Visit

There is something for everyone at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, and we invite you to “come and see” all that we have to offer. Stop by for the day or participate in a retreat, and immerse yourself in the monastic culture. A visit to the Monastery appeals to the mind, body and soul. While the natural beauty of the land and the unique architecture appeals to the eye, the monk’s commitment and dedication speaks to the soul.

Take a “mini retreat” and join us for the day. Enjoy nature, learn about the ancient traditions of Monasticism, explore our bonsai gardens, see the Gothic architecture and shop at the Abbey Store, it’s worth the trip! Find out how you can see it all.
