The Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Rockdale County is offering tours every month on the fourth Saturday from June 24-Oct. 28. Docents will guide visitors on a remarkable journey through a place filled with purpose as visitors discover the spiritual landscape where Trappist monks live, work and pray in a community cloistered from the outside world.

Sponsored by the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area Alliance, the two-hour tours will begin near the entrance to the Abbey Store. Participants will gain insight into the Abbey Church architecture and construction, marvel at hand-crafted stain glass and will be joined by a monk to visit spaces normally closed to the public. These tours give visitors a special opportunity to discover why the Monastery of the Holy Spirit is the spiritual gateway of the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area.

The cost of the tour is $12 for participants ages 13 and over; children 12 and younger are free.  Pre-registration is required and tickets can be purchased at

For more information about the tour, contact Arabia Alliance Director of Interpretation Sarah Lisle at 404-998-8384 or
