Stand up and go your way; your faith has saved you.
On This Date…
On November 13, 1893, Abbot Bernard Pennings, O.Praem., the founder of Archmere, and two Norbertine companions, arrived in New Jersey by boat from Holland. Twenty-three other Dutch Norbertines would later come to America as missionaries in Wisconsin.
On November 13, 1963, 50 years ago today, Daylesford Priory was established as an independent Norbertine community; the Norbertines of Daylesford currently sponsor Archmere.
On November 13, 2006, ground was broken at Archmere for the Student Life Center; it was dedicated on October 12, 2007.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus says to the healed man, “Stand up and go your way; your faith has saved you.” Today, we celebrate the faith of Saint Augustine, Abbot Pennings and his companions, and the benefactors of the Student Life Center.
