The Abbey of Santa Maria de la Vid, along with Norbertine abbeys and communities worldwide, will be celebrating the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Order of Prémontré by Norbert of Xanten. With this celebration we hope to introduce, or reintroduce, you to the Norbertines in New Mexico and worldwide.
As our Mission states, we live a simple communal life according to the Rule of Augustine and the ancient traditions of the Order of Prémontré by loving service to the Church of Santa Fe especially to its poor and needy.
Please come back and visit this page often, as we will update it with newsletters about various topics on our order’s history and celebration as the 5th oldest surviving religious order in the Roman Catholic Church. Each month’s newsletter can be accessed by clicking on the images below.
