Let Us Love One Another



"Let Us Love One Another":

St. Norbert College's Theme for 2013-14 


Let Us Love One Another: It was Abbot Bernard Pennings’ motto – one clearly reflected in the life he lived.

Through Pennings, we learn that love is about movement – he crossed an ocean to serve the needs of a small community in Wisconsin. Love is about being present – in listening, Pennings heard his new community’s call for education, and founded the college we now call our own. Love sinks deep roots and needs daily tending – so Pennings founded an abbey where his community could pray, eat and learn together.

May our community be a place that loves in the spirit of Pennings:

  •  boldly crossing boundaries and moving to new places
  •  present to one another, especially those who feel their voices are not heard
  •  investing ourselves in the deep sustenance of prayer, companionship, and meaningful dialogue.
