Live + Jesus

Always & Forever

Welcome to Maryfield, the Monastery of the Visitation of Holy Mary. We are located in Snellville, Georgia. We are a Community of contemplative, cloistered Nuns. We pray daily for the needs of the Church and of the world. Our Founder, St. Francis de Sales, a Doctor of the Church, wanted “to give to God daughters of prayer, and souls so interior that they may be found worthy to serve His Infinite Majesty, and to adore Him in spirit and in truth.”Thus we share in the evangelization of the world by a hidden apostolic fruitfulness.
Our “Charism” or “Spirit” is one of profound humility towards God, and great gentleness towards our neighbor. We have the special vocation in the Church of celebrating the Divine Office 5 times a day. Inspired, sustained, and enlivened by the Holy Spirit, the liturgy is a privileged means of seeking the world’s salvation, in solidarity with all peoples.
