Going forth to be priests to God’s people.

Archangel Institute

In September 2020, St. Michael’s Abbey began the Archangel Institute, a faith-formation program open to young men ages 14-18. For the sake of fostering authentic Catholic maturity among our youth, the Archangel Institute offers weekly high school-level religion courses, spiritual outreach to parents, and quarterly father-and-son days of recollection.

Offered on Monday evenings for the duration of one academic year (September – May), it is hoped that the curriculum, which can either supplement or substitute for other religion courses, is recognized by various entities as fulfilling certain religion requirements.

Throughout the year, St. Michael’s offers day retreats with conferences given by our Norbertine priests, Mass, confession, and silent prayer time.

And He said to them, ‘Come away to some lonely place all by yourselves and rest for a while’. Mark 6:31

Request A Mass

The Mass is the highest form of Christian charity. It re-presents the perfect sacrifice of Calvary, and so it is the priest’s essential duty and his greatest honor to offer Holy Mass.

In all ages, the Christian faithful have traditionally offered alms for the celebration of the Mass, for the support of the priest and the maintenance of the church where the sacred rites are celebrated.

Let Us Pray For You

One essential element of our religious vocation is to pray for the needs and intentions of others. We would be honored to pray for you and your loved ones.

Please share with us your intentions and be assured that we will carry them with us in prayer.

Summer Camp

St. Michael’s Summer Camp exists to bring young souls closer to Jesus Christ. Our primary goal is to promote in our campers an increase in the virtues of faith, hope, and charity.

The camp experience also seeks to strengthen their respect for parental and civil authority, as well as provide a Christian setting in which the boys can have fun participating in activities and associating with others of their age group.

Lay Order

For more than thirty years, men and women striving for this communion have come to St. Michael’s Abbey to follow a spiritual path that leads to love of God and neighbor. Some have sought a closer union with the Canons Regular of Premontré in what is known as the Lay Order.

Through spiritual direction, personal prayer, holy reading, and reception of the sacraments, members of the Lay Order strive to live out their baptismal commitment.

The Brotherhood of St. Dismas

The Brotherhood of St. Dismas is a confraternity of Catholic men dedicated to providing them spiritual formation and guidance.
Currently in seven parishes in the Dioceses of Orange and Los Angeles, together the men receive formation in their faith, attend a yearly retreat, and sponsor charitable outreach, such as pro-life ministry and providing goods to an orphanage.
