Student Engagement in Parish Life

Our student involvement is amazing. Established in 1969 as the first college parish in the United States, ours is a Catholic church community with its roots in the Norbertine tradition. Our membership extends to the 2,200 students who call St. Norbert College home, to our faculty and staff, and to many who continue to celebrate their active ties to the college. Through our common liturgy – the “font and summit” of our life together in the church – we offer many ways to be involved.
