Dancing with the Grace of the Moment: Meditative Writing Retreat with Meg Ashcroft @ Norbertine Abbey
Sep 21 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Dancing with the Grace of the Moment: Meditative Writing Retreat with Meg Ashcroft @ Norbertine Abbey

All are welcome to participate—no writing experience is necessary.

Please register by Monday, September 16 by calling (505) 873-1499 , or email MAshcroft@norbertine community.org.

$55.00 cost includes lunch

Grace is a divine energy that is always present in our lives.  Everyone is called to the fullness of a graced life, but in order to “dance” with grace or fully realize its presence, we need to become aware of the countless forms it takes.

In this meditative writing retreat, we will explore the ways grace appears so that we may experience our world as deeply touched by God’s love.

The Prophetic Vision: Life as a Liberation Journey @ Norbertine Abbey
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
The Prophetic Vision: Life as a Liberation Journey @ Norbertine Abbey

All are welcome to participate in this presentation at the Norbertine Abbey by Rabbi Nahum Ward-Lev of Santa Fe.

What are the spiritual resources that help us to live with wisdom, vision and hope in the face of contemporary societal challenges? We will seek these spiritual resources by studying the way of the Hebrew prophets. We will explore how the prophets challenged unjust institutions of their day and brought forward a vision of an alternative future. We will study the worldview of the Hebrew prophet and apply the learning to our own day. The presentation will include scripture reflection, conversation and experiential exercises.

Rabbi Nahum is an experienced spiritual director who has led workshops at retreat centers, synagogues, churches and seminaries across the U.S. His book, The Liberating Path of the Hebrew Prophets: Then and Now, was published earlier this year by Orbis Books.

Registration is not necessary for this event. Free will offerings are greatly appreciated.

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.
