Houses of Our Canonry

Today there are approximately 1,500 Norbertines worldwide. Canons attached to St. Norbert Abbey reside:

  • at St. Norbert Abbey in De Pere, Wisconsin.
  • at Holy Spirit House of Studies in Chicago, which serves as the primary theologate for young Norbertines in priestly formation.
  • at the Priory of St. Moses the Black in Raymond, Mississippi, just outside the city of Jackson. Founded in 1990, Norbertines who live at this location serve the spiritual needs of Black Americans and others.

Daughter Abbeys

Two houses originally founded by St. Norbert Abbey have also since become independent canonries of the worldwide Norbertine Order.

Daylesford Abbey

In 1963 Our Lady of Daylesford in Paoli, Pennsylvania, was recognized as a daughter abbey of the De Pere foundation. In 1997, Daylesford Abbey became two distinct canonries—one headquartered in Paoli and the other in Claymont, Deleware.

Santa María de la Vid Abbey

In 2012 Santa María de la Vid in Albuquerque became the second independent daughter abbey of St. Norbert Abbey. Originally opened as a priory in 1985, Norbertines of Santa María de la Vid Abbey minister among the local Hispanic and Native American populations.
