In 1971, this 27 acre hayfield was purchased off a dirt road in Snellville, Georgia. The Sisters dedicated it to Mary, calling it Mary’s Field, hence the name “Maryfield.” The Monastery was built in 1973 and the Sisters moved in 1974. Enclosure was established on October 7, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary that year.

We have many wonderful benefactors who support us in many ways to enhance our life.
