On November 13, 2016, today, Archmere welcomed prospective students and their families to the Annual Fall Open House. Mrs. Lightcap said of the day, “Amazed. Inspired. Grateful.” We continue to “walk in unity of mind and heart intent on God.”

We Are God’s Children

Today’s Word:

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


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, Abbot Bernard Pennings, O.Praem., the founder of Archmere, and two Norbertine companions, arrived in New Jersey by boat from Holland; 23 other Dutch Norbertines would later come to America as missionaries.

On November 13, 1963, 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.

At Mass today we heard Saint John say, “Beloved, we are God’s children now”. It was that knowledge that inspired Saint Augustine, Abbot Pennings and his companions, and the benefactors of Archmere’s Student Life Center.
