We are a community of vowed Catholic monks who live in Conyers, Georgia, near Atlanta. We have Trappistine sisters who live in other monasteries in the US. Officially we are called Cistercians of the Strict Observance, but we are commonly known as Trappists.
We believe in the power of deep, contemplative prayer, and we pursue it wholeheartedly by following the centuries’ old rule of St. Benedict. In relative simplicity, silence and separation from dominant culture, we balance the practices of prayer, study and work. Our deep inner lives, distinct daily rhythms and shared spiritual journey become a continuous prayer of love—to God and for the world.
We love our life and want to share it with others.
