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 for boys age 7-14 run by their seminarians.

Visitors are welcome to join in the various liturgical celebrations throughout the day.
