Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael's Abbey
St. Michael's Abbey is a community of Norbertine Canons Regular in Orange County, CA. The community was raised to the status of an abbey in 1984 because of its growth. St. Michael's Abbey now numbers nearly 70 members.
Members of St. Michael's Abbey live a life that combines monastic observance and a complete singing of the choral office and Mass every day with an active apostolate. The abbey's principal apostolate is its preparatory school, a boys' boarding school (9-12). The priests are also involved in parish work, retreats and writing and translation of spiritual books.
