Holy Wisdom Monastery LEED certified building

The monastery building opened in the fall of 2009. In late March 2010 the U.S. Green Building Council awarded Holy Wisdom Monastery a Platinum rating – the highest level of leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification available.

This environmentally friendly, air conditioned building fits gently into the landscape and houses:

  • the oratory used for daily prayer
  • the assembly room used for Sunday worship and special events
  • small meditation chapel
  • reception desk for guest check-in and staff assistance
  • spirituality library with over 4000 volumes
  • gathering area with an open floor plan
  • guest dining room equipped with a screen, LCD projector, and public address system; two walls of windows give a full view of the grounds
  • community dining room where meals prepared by our chef from fresh, nutritious ingredients are served
  • patio with fire pit outside assembly room and dining room
  • wireless computer access
  • accessible for all
  • parking
