Our Laity bbe A Norbertine Community santa María de la Vid Y



In keeping with the earliest visions of our order, our abbey is the spiritual home to a number of lay faithful who join us in our mission and vocation as Norbertines.  We presently have two forms of Norbertine laity connected to our Abbey: associates and oblates.


The associates are modeled after the small christian community movement and support one another and the vision of our Abbey modeling their relationship together off our spirituality of unity.  This group relates collectively to our Abbey.


The oblates are lay women and men who take life-long promises as individuals directly to our community and relate individually to our way of life while maintaining their relationships and responsibilities outside the abbey.
