  • We love it here HOWEVER it’s NOT OPEN NOW! Check their website before you go to see if it’s open. Today we went for a hike at the grounds and on the hiking path. Disappointed we couldn’t go in.

  • This place is incredible! As soon as you enter the grounds, you feel a deep peace. The monks are so warm, friendly, and prayerful. You'll feel like you are on holy ground. The church, the store...

  • This is one of the most peaceful places I have found where I can reflect upon the Scriptures, reflect upon theological readings that discuss the whole Council of the Godhead, as well as spiritual, family, global, national, local concerns which I need to discuss with God in prayer. PLUS I enjoy the Abbey's coffee and biscotti biscuits! I have met a few of the monks there and find them to be kind and intense in their love for others. May the Lord continue to bless and to keep you and may we all come to be one in the Holy Spirit which inspires us with the love redemption and reconciliation that Jesus Christ has bestowed upon all who believe.
  • Beautiful and peaceful. Has a walking trail. And a prayer walk to the church (the abbey ). Visit their store. It's very cozy and nice
  • Beautiful monastery at the end of the panola/Arabia mountain path open to the public. Clean bathrooms and running water inside. The monastery is under construction so is not fully open but it very breathtaking with lots of stained glass.
  • Beauty cathedral worth visiting. I went just to take pictures. Find me on Instagram for more @zech.browning.75 there is a link in bio to prints
  • A great friendly place to relax, hike, talk, and eat. They have a really nice giftshop, the things inside of it are made by the monks. It was also educational and had a great museum.
