You can help keep the work of Daylesford Abbey alive by supporting our mission and ministry. For 900 years, lay people have partnered with the Norbertines by sharing of their time, talent and treasure.
Generous men and women have helped Daylesford Abbey serve the local church through our mission and ministry. With support from our benefactors, Daylesford Abbey can remain a needed oasis of peace and a center for healing and reconciliation. We are available for individual and group retreats. We minister to those in need of healing, comfort and companionship. We could not continue our work without your help.
We invite you to join this tradition and support Daylesford Abbey through the following ways. Please be as generous as possible.
Our Annual Giving Appeal [Feb – Jun] fills in the gap to cover operational costs and programs that fall outside of the regular contributions made to the Abbey. We invite you to offer a gift in memory or in honor of a loved one.
Tiered levels for giving are:
Fellows – $1,000 and above
Contributors – $500 to $999
Members – $250 – $499
Donors – $100 – $249
Friends – $1 – $99
When a loved one dies it is natural to find a way of perpetually remembering that person. Many families have designated that donations be made to Daylesford Abbey in the name of a deceased family member. In this way, the mission of the Norbertines is continued and the deceased are enrolled in our Memorial Chapel and are remembered in our community Mass and prayer. (As we receive a Memorial Contribution, the family of the deceased is notified and each donor is also thanked.)
Questions about Memorial Gifts should be directed to: Fr. John Joseph Novielli, Director of Development
A Mass enrollment card is a wonderful expression of our prayers and concern for a friend or family member in need of God’s special blessing. We invite you to enroll a friend or loved one in this joyful prayer union today. For a grieving friend, a lonesome relative, or someone facing a critical decision, your act of faith can restore love and life.
You are invited to join the Abbot John Neitzel Society. The Abbot John E. Neitzel Society is a group of friends of the Abbey who have designated in their wills that they will remember the Abbey in their estate planning. Yearly they are invited to a Sunday Abbey Mass and brunch with the Norbertine Community
Additional information concerning remembering Daylesford Abbey in your will may be obtained from Fr. John Joseph Novielli, Director of Development.
