The city of the saints is above, although here below it begets citizens, in whom it sojourns till the time of its reign arrives, when it shall gather together all in the day of the resurrection; and then shall the promised kingdom be given to them, in which they shall reign with their Prince, the King of the ages, time without end.
– St. Augustine, City of God, Bk 15, c 1


Immersed in the 900-year tradition of our order, we Norbertine Fathers live a common life of liturgical prayer and care for souls. Our abbey here in Orange consists of nearly fifty priests and thirty seminarians studying for the priesthood.
