Postulants of St. Michael's Abbey, CA 2022


If you feel God is calling you to the religious life, or you are simply curious about how such a life would be, the first step is to contact your nearest Norbertine house, most of which invite the public to join them at prayer.

Because our order is not centralized, our houses vary in the way they communicate with potential novices. Check the website of your nearest house, if they have one, or contact the vocations director or master/mistress of novices.

Our 81 houses around the world are autonomous, so each has its own distinct quality; some communities are more contemplative than others. We have an abbot general based in Rome, but our order is not centrally managed.
