Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

Norbertine Canons

The Norbertine Order (Premonstratensians) was founded  in the early 2th century by St. Norbert of Xanten (1080-1134) in the valley of Prémontré (modern day France.) The Canons Regular of Prémontré, also known as the Premonstratensians, Norbertines, or White Canons consist of a group of Roman Catholic priests, brothers, sisters, deacons and novices.

Norbertines profess:
  1. Poverty that demands simplicity of life and the sharing of our lives and talents with each other and with those we minister to.
  2. Consecrated celibacy that opens us to growth in the Spirit in union with others.
  3. Obedience that opens us as fully as possible to God's will.
As ‘canons’ we are dedicated to the dignified and public celebration of the Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) in choir each day.


At its peak, in the early 1300’s the order numbered over 10,000 members. Today there are about 1200 Norbertines in communities in France, Belgium, Netherlands, Britain (England), Ireland (Republic), Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Russia, United States of America, Canada, South Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Brazil, Peru, India and Australia.
