Prayer
Prayer is the heart of our community. It is the single most significant aspect of our life that nourishes the thirst of our mind, heart, and soul. Following the spirituality of St. Norbert, we believe that it is at the altar that we show forth our faith and love of God.

Prepared for every good work
Like St. Norbert, our Congregation strives to be ready for anything that God calls us to do and to be anything that God calls us to be. The "active" aspect of our life consists in various apostolates that help our parish and community.

Chant is a beautiful and important part of our liturgical tradition as Norbertines. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM 41) states that “Gregorian chant holds pride of place because it is proper to the Roman Liturgy”. Our Congregation studies Gregorian Chant and invite you to listen to a few hymns we are practicing!
