Risen Christ sends us Apostles

Our Mission

The Risen Christ sends us Apostles to witness the reality and the power of a Christian community of faith by living a simple communial life according to the Rule of Augustine and the ancient traditions of the Order of Premontre by loving service to the Church of Santa Fe especially to its poor and needy.

Our Life

The Norbertine Community is a religious order that vows a lifetime of conversion and worship in all we do. We seek to grow in holiness in our relationship with God in, through, and with one another and those who we serve.

Our Story

In the years after Vatican II, under the leadership of Abbot Benjamin Mackin, a conviction grew among the men of St. Norbert Abbey in DePere, WI that the canonry should put forth a greater effort to serve the increasing number of Hispanic Catholics in the United States.

Our Abbey

Our Abbey’s greatest resources are members. We believe that our vocation calls us to hold all things in common and to steward them for the greater good of our community and the people of God who surround our Abbey campus.

Ministries

Our central ministry is our way of life. The heart of our life as Norbertines is to grow in holiness and in our relationship to God in, through, and with one another.

Discern a Vocation

If you feel you may have a religious vocation, or have questions about religious life it is a blessed opportunity to explore those longings, questions and potential life paths.

Pray with Us

You are welcome to join us in prayer during our public liturgies! The general public and individuals and groups on retreat at the Abbey are invited to join us in prayer. Please note that times are subject to change.
