Norbertine Fathers and Brothers
( O.Praem.), Canons Regular of Prémontré,
St. Norbert Abbey The Norbertine Community of St. Norbert Abbey (The Premonstraten-sian Fathers and Brothers) is dedicated to living a communal, active-contemplative lifestyle
according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ while
following the Rule of St. Augustine. We profess
Solemn Vows, committing ourselves to the
apostolic life and a promise of ongoing conversion of our ways. Our membership consists of
50 men living primarily at St. Norbert Abbey in
De Pere, WI, but also at our House of Formation in Chicago. As Canons Regular, our first
ministry is living the common life devoted to
the sung choral office (Morning and Evening
Prayer), daily Eucharist, Midday Prayer, and
common table. Various ministries flow from
there, including pastoral and sacramental
ministry, education and administration at St.
Norbert College and Notre Dame de la Baie
Academy, parochial ministry at parishes incorporated in or entrusted to our community,
hospitality, retreats, advocacy for and ministry
to the poor and marginalized, and numerous
unique ministries as needed. Qualified candidates have or are in the process of completing
a college degree and are ready and willing
to live unselfishly in a communal lifestyle.

Order of the Blessed Virgin
Mary of Mercy ( O.deM.),
Mercedarians One of the ancient
Orders of the Catholic Church, the
Mercedarian Friars, were founded
in 1218. The Friars honor the Blessed Virgin
Mary, as the foundress and mother of the work
of mercy begun by St. Peter Nolasco: the
redemption of Christians in danger of losing
their faith. This work of mercy is conducted
in parishes, where faith is attacked; in schools,
where empty values threaten our youths; in
institutions of health care or detention, where
despair is present; and in foreign missions,
where social conditions threaten one’s faith.
Men, between the ages of 18-40, who desire
to live a life centered in Mary and her Son, to
pray the rosary daily in common, live in
community with one’s “brothers” based upon
the Rule of St. Augustine, have a deep love for
the Magisterium and in preserving the Faith
by catechesis, are invited to contact the
Director of Vocations, Fr. Daniel Bowen, O.
de M.; 727-348-4060; frdanielbowen@gmail.
