Silverado, California: Saint Michael’s Abbey

About the Norbertines at Saint Michael’s Abbey:

Immersed in the 900-year tradition of their order, the Norbertine Fathers live a common life of liturgical prayer and care for souls. As of 2021 the abbey in Orange County consisted of nearly fifty priests and thirty seminarians studying for the priesthood.

The priests of their canonry operate parishes and teach in schools, as well as providing chaplains to colleges and communities of religious women. Some of the confreres write books and articles, while others have ministries through internet and radio. They celebrate the sacraments and teach religious education in prisons, youth facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes. The abbey is the site of numerous retreats and Bible studies, as well as a popular summer camp run by their seminarians.

About the New Abbey:

Their community has been blessed by a tremendous amount of growth—both in numbers, as well as in their apostolates. This growth has resulted in the urgent need for a new abbey to advance their mission more effectively.

In March 2018 they completed their fundraising campaign and successfully met their goal of $120,000,000. They broke ground and construction is underway!
