DAYLESFORD ABBEY

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 preaching, teaching, parish work, social services, retreat ministry and so much more.

WHO IS DAYLESFORD ABBEY?

Daylesford Abbey exists to enrich the church by our Norbertine communio nourished by contemplation on God’s Word, made visible in worship and service within the local church.

Daylesford Abbey is a living and breathing community dedicated to God. Learn more about the men who live in our community.

ABBEY LIFE

There is a rhythm to life at Daylesford Abbey formed by worship, contemplation, service and communio.

Daylesford Abbey is seeking men who are committed to loving and serving Jesus Christ completely, who will support their brothers in Christ through common life and common prayer, and who will dedicate themselves to be ministers of peace and reconciliation.

In an environment of hospitality and inclusivity, Daylesford Abbey’s Spirituality Center is here to assist all longing for a deepening sense of personal and communal spiritual growth.

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.

Fr. Nicholas R. Terico, O.Praem.

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.

That is not why I became I Norbertine. But that is why I stay.

Fr. Carl Braschoss, O’ Praem.

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.

Fr. Richard Antonucci, O. Praem.
