In 1923, a group of Dutch Norbertines from Berne Abbey (the same abbey that sent Fr. Bernard Pennings to Wisconsin 30 years prior) arrived in India and established their apostolate in the southern state of Andhrapradesh. Over the years, his successful venture precipitated the spread of Norbertines to other regions in India, who continue to this day serving the pastoral, educational, and other social needs of their local communities. Join us in conversation with three Indian Norbertines–Fr. Xavier, Fr. Christian, and Fr. Sengole–as we discuss the history and heritage, and the triumphs and challenges, of the Norbertines in India.
