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. Such exploration can lead to greater self knowledge and a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
As a community we seek to accompany men in their discernment of the call of God in their lives. Whether your life path shall lead to a lifelong commitment as a Norbertine or not, we hope that we may journey with you to assist you in discerning the mode of life that will lead you to fully flourish as the person God made you to be.
Vocation at the Norbertine Abbey
We are a 900 year old Roman Catholic religious order of priests and brothers living a simple communal life according to the Rule of St. Augustine, in fidelity with the magisterium and Holy Father, serving the local Church of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Over 400 years after the Roman Catholic Faith was brought to New Mexico we as Norbertines, Canons Regular of Premontre, are planting the seeds of our ancient tradition to live a life of community, contemplation and compassionate service with the people of God in the southwest.
We are the youngest abbey of our ancient Order.
