A WORLDWIDE ORDER

When Norbert of Xanten founded his order in the 12th century, it is unlikely he could have imagined the impact his community would have on the world. Today, its reach extends to six continents and is made up of more than 1,600 members, including priests, brothers, deacons and novices, as well as nuns and sisters, plus hundreds of lay associates connected to these communities.
