900 Years of the Norbertines

900 Years of the NorbertinesIn 2021, Norbertines across the world will celebrate the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Order.

It was on Christmas Eve in 1120 that the First Norbertines – around 40 in number – made their first profession in the Valley of Prémontré.

Christmas 2020 will mark the 900th year of the foundation of the Canons Regular of Prémontré (our official name) by St Norbert of Xanten.

Communities across the globe will be celebrating the inspiration and legacy of St Norbert.

Recently, during their formal graduation, St Norbert College Year 12 students of 2020 presented a celebratory flag to mark the anniversary.

Watch for it flying at the College in the coming year.
