DAYLESFORD ABBEY COMMUNITY

Daylesford Abbey — a Norbertine community of Catholic priests and brothers — is an oasis of peace in the lovely Chester County countryside. We live a common life through contemplation on God’s Word, common prayer and active service to the local Catholic community through a mission of reconciliation, healing, and peace.

Together, as we dedicate ourselves to the works of reconciliation, we not only help one another reweave the fabric of our lives, we become the loom of blessing on which God is reweaving the lives of all who come to us for hope and healing. That is not why I became I Norbertine. But that is why I stay.

We Norbertines value, celebrate and work really hard at building what, in Latin, is called comunio…that inner togetherness that is expressed in outward form. It is our family life, in a sense, and it’s the true basis of what makes me feel best about being a Norbertine. It’s all at once a gift, a blessing and a responsibility.

Day to day, I continue to be inspired and nourished by the moths and rituals that sustain our Nobertine vocation: The stories of our God who is a communion of Father, Son and Spirit; the Jerusalem community born from the side of Christ; Augustine’s embodiment of the Jerusalem dream at Hippo; Norbert’s revival of that dream at Premontre; and the ongoing work of implanting the Norbertine myth in these United States of America.
