The Canons Regular of Premontre

where god guides, he provides

Welcome to St. Norbert Abbey, a place for those pursuing holiness through daily conversion.
You will never enjoy the sweetness of a quiet prayer, unless you shut your mind, to all worldly desires and temporal affairs.

Foundation

The History of St. Norbert Abbey

The Canons Regular of Premontre, (The Order of Premonstratensians) also known as the Norbertines, are members of the Order founded by St. Norbert of Xanten on Christmas night, 1121 in the valley of Premontre midway between Laon and Soissons, France. The Order of Canons Regular of Premontre is numbered among the great religious families, which have molded the culture of Europe through their work of evangelization and civilization. Their way of life is based on the Rules of St. Augustine.

As a fruit of the Gregorian reform, the Order of Premontre exemplifies a life-style, which is both original and traditional. It signals a transition between the ancient monasticism and the mendicant orders, places religious life at the service of the priesthood and above all takes as its model the life of the apostles chosen by Jesus that “they might be with him and he might send them forth to preach” (Mk: 3:14)
