The Catholic parish church of St. Michael belongs to the monastery. There is also a smaller Protestant parish church of St. Cosmas and Damian, a former pilgrimage church in Marienrode on the edge of the monastery grounds. To the east of the monastery is the Marienrode cemetery.In accordance with the popular version of Benedictine life Ora et labora, everyday life is structured by the common prayer times. The Marienrode sisters run a retreat and guest house maintained by the Diocese of Hildesheim, run a book and art shop, and perform ministerial and organist services in the church, which is also a parish church. The convent is a three-wing complex to the north of the Church of St. Michael and encloses a simple cloister courtyard. The monastery gate, like the second baroque portal on the west wing, is adorned with a chronogram.
