About the program

Sinner to Saint. Ordinary to Extraordinary. As relevant today as he was a millennium ago, St. Norbert’s life shows us the heroic adventure in living for Christ which takes joy, struggle, failure and victory in its stride. Walk with us as we strive to imitate his virtues, let his life inspire us to greater things, and complete our own conversions from sinners to saints!

Join the Norbertines of St. Michael’s Abbey for this unique program as we prepare together for the feast of St. Norbert on June 6th.

A first time offer

Captivated by the original French story, our confreres translated Petite Vie de Saint Norbert into English for the first time. Wanting to broaden the reach of this exemplary saint, we designed this special offer specifically for our online community so that by going deeper into the life of St. Norbert, you will find the inspiration for conversion of heart and joy in the hope of lasting holiness.

We challenge you to make the pilgrimage: take time every day to prepare for this feast. Now is the acceptable time! Know of our prayers for you as we prepare together for the feast of a saint so dear to our community.

A Story Worth Telling

Fr. Dominique-Marie Dauzet, O.Praem., a French Norbertine and canon of the Abbey of Mondaye in Normandy, France, wrote a book titled Petite vie de saint Norbert, first published in 1995 and again in a second edition in 2013. In 1996 this work was awarded the prix Montyon by the Académie française commending it for its “elevated character and moral usefulness.”

Fr. Norbert introduced this book to the novices of St. Michael’s Abbey in 2022, with his own English translation under the title The Eternal Pilgrim: A life of St. Norbert. The book was read as table reading at the Abbey’s 2023 annual retreat  and was received by the community with an enthusiasm never before seen regarding a book about St. Norbert.

Fr. Abbot and the confreres wanted to share this amazing book about their Founder with family and friends online. The Abbot’s Circle is now making the first ever English translation of this book available to the abbey’s online community of friends through this program.
