You will never enjoy the sweetness of a quiet prayer, unless you shut your mind, to all worldly desires and temporal affairs.

St. Norbert of Xanten

Vision

To experience communion with God, fellow brothers and sisters, universe and oneself in its fullness, as lived by Jesus Christ, inspired by St. Norbert and St. Augustine, and to share that experience with every one through our life and mission.

To emphasize and establish communion in all aspects of our life. To enhance our present apostolate with both spiritual and professional means and take up new missions wherever needed reading the signs of the times. To commit ourselves to a preferential option for the poor, the oppressed and the marginalized and foster love, freedom, justice, unity and peace. To join hands with all people of good will to work for human dignity and rights, to preserve and enhance cultural identity and values and the sanctity of creation.

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)

The word of God is inflamed with the fire of the Holy Spirit. It consumes vices and promotes virtue.
