Benedictine Monks

Continuing an ancient Christian tradition in a modern world.

Situated in the Piedmont Region of Northeast Georgia, Our Lady of Good Hope, is home to a small but growing community of men who desire to live, work, and pray together, following the Rule of Saint Benedict and a more than 1500 year old monastic tradition.

The Benedictines of Stilfontein Priory, provide pastoral support to Saint Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church (Alto) and the Prior continues to serve as the Vicar General of the Missionary Diocese of the West (South Africa). The Fathers and Brothers also serve as chaplains to various nursing homes, hospitals, universities, and prisons in the area.

As is traditional with monastic centres, education is also an important mission of Our Lady of Good Hope Priory and the Benedictines plan to serve serve as instructors for students enrolled in Saint Luke’s Seminary and House of Formation, also located on the grounds once those operations are also relocated.
