In life, we are all called to a vocation to fulfill our lives. Some of us may be called to pursue teaching, becoming a doctor or the arts. Some of us receive a call from God to religious life. When God calls you, how will you know?

The call from God might start as a whisper that grows louder and more persistent each day. The first telltale sign may be a strong desire towards religious life. In particular, those who feel pulled to the Catholic priesthood will want to be ordained and live out their vocation to God. 

If you feel pulled in the direction of religious life and/or the Catholic priesthood, Daylesford Abbey is here to help you on your journey to answer your call from God. As Norbertines, we follow the rule of St. Norbert, and live a common life together at the Abbey. Contact Abbot Domenic A. Rossi for further information at or call 610-647-2530.
