What is a Canon Regular? Lunch ‘n Learn

Facilitated by Michael Holstead, Director of Center for Norbertine Studies

Join us on a historical voyage tracing the origins of canons from the earliest Christian communities, culminating in the emergence of the Norbertines as the "Canons Regular of Prémontré." Learn the nuanced roles and distinctions among canons regular, monks, friars, Jesuits, and diocesan priests. And discover how they skillfully adapted their way of life to faithfully serve both their local communities and the broader Catholic Church, weaving a tapestry of rich traditions over the centuries. All of this, while eating lunch!

Open to all faculty, staff, students.
