Sacred Spaces for Prayer and Reflection

Prayer and contemplation are core aspects of Norbertine life. St. Norbert of Xanten placed strong emphasis on prayer, study and reflection as integral to his own process of life long conversion. Norbert’s choice of The Rule of St. Augustine as the guide for his followers reaffirms the centrality of prayer in all its forms to Christian life. The Rule encourages community members to be zealous in prayer, and mandates that an oratory be set apart as a place completely dedicated to both communal and private prayer. Furthermore, St. Augustine in his rule exhorts that when we pray, “ponder in your hearts what your lips are saying.” In the Norbertine tradition, private prayer and spiritual reading complement the Liturgy of the Hours and above all the Eucharist as the deep sources of communio.

St. Norbert College is committed to providing spaces for prayer or quiet reflection for members of the college community from any faith or spiritual perspective. You will find these spaces vary – from formal spaces conducive to group gatherings to quiet spots in which individuals can catch their breath.
