Liturgy

Praised be Jesus Christ! Now and forever more!

We are a Canonry of the Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré, founded by St. Norbert on Christmas Day 1121. For over 900 years, our Order has striven to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and work tirelessly for the salvation of souls. We do this through the “communion” we share, lived out by singing the praise of God in the Holy Mass and Divine Office; in lifting high the Blessed Sacrament above all the errors and miseries of the world; by loving our Blessed Mother; in a zeal for souls; and in a life of sacrifice and penance. We continue that great mission in sharing with you our website. I hope you enjoy your visit to this site and find within it a fitting witness to the Lord of All.

Please pray for us as we promise to pray for you.

Rt. Revd.

Hugh Allan O.Praem.

History

Our Order is inextricably linked to the history of medieval and modern Europe, and, in more recent times, to that of the Church throughout the world. It is a history of the interweaving of high culture and the proclamation of the Gospel to create a civilization of love.

Vocations

What will make us truly happy? Surely, to do the will of the One who truly loves us and desires our happiness. If you think the Lord is calling you to follow Him, pray with the psalmist in saying, “Show me, Lord, your way, so that I may walk in your truth.”
