Was here on retreat with my husband. You feel the holiness of the Hill when you round the corner and see the spires rousing above the town. Saint Meinrad always feels like home. So glad to have another reason to be here.

Interesting place to visit. The church is beautiful. There was some construction and the library was closed on Sundays, so couldn't see tons - plus quite a bit was private area. You could feel the presence of God here.

Beautiful day in southern Indiana. Was able to get a guided tour of abbey. Most was wheelchair accessible. Nuns were very friendly. Beautiful looking out from the top. Attended service on Sunday. Would love to go again in fall.

Monastic life revolves around prayer, built on the framework of the Liturgy of the Hours, and the various hours are open to guests of the monastery to help them to connect to that framework. But prayer is not merely talking to God, but even more...More
