God’s Children

Today’s Word:

“Beloved, we are God’s children now” (1 John 3:2)

On This Date…

On November 13, 354 Saint Augustine was born in North Africa; after his conversion in 387 he was ordained a priest and bishop, and wrote the Rule that Norbertines follow.

On November 13, 1893 Father Bernard Pennings, O.Praem., the founder of Archmere, and two Norbertine companions, arrived in America by boat from Holland; 23 other Dutch Norbertines would later come to America as missionaries to Wisconsin.

On November 13, 1963, Daylesford Priory was established as an independent Norbertine community; the Norbertines of Daylesford currently sponsor Archmere.

At Mass today we hear Saint John say, “Beloved, we are God’s children now”, great news for us on this November 13th – a Friday!
