Palm Sunday

St. Augustine's Day 2016

Sunday August 28, 2016
Solemnity of our Holy Father St. Augustine

The rest of the Church may have been celebrating the Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, but for us sons of St. Augustine, this day was the solemnity of our holy father, whose rule we Norbertines follow. In fact, four of our confreres made their first profession of vows on this day—Fraters Lazarus, Urban, Louis, and Alcuin—offering themselves to the service of the abbey church according to the Holy Rule of St. Augustine.
