  • Archconfraternity
    In Rev Father Geudens O Praem the Holy Mass of Reparation found a most zealous Apostle He first established it in his little church dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament and St Norbert till his Lordship the Bishop of Nottingham Dr Bogshawe came to erect it canonically for his diocese on 8th October 1886 When in 1889 December 24th a new foundation was opened in Manchester by the Rt Rev Abbot Heylen who later became Lord Bishop of Namur and President of the International Eucharistic Congresses Father Geudens after 17 years of hard missionary work at Crowle was appointed as Superior of this new mission Corpus Christi He brought with him the work of his heart the Holy Mass of Reparation which as soon as January 16th 1890 thus only three weeks after his arrival was established canonically as a Confraternity by no less a person than his Lordship the Bishop of Salford the Rt Rev Herbert Vaughan later to be Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster In 1891 the Confraternity had already 7 000 members It was due also to the support and the approbation of this Bishop that only three years later on the 5th March 1893 the flourishing Confraternity was raised by Pontifical Brief to the rank and dignity of an Archconfraternity The field of its activities was first confined to England only Then it was extended to Ireland and Scotland by a new Pontifical Brief of 20th July 1895 This happy event was mainly due to the influence and the patronage of His Eminence Cardinal Logue Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland and also of His Grace the Most Rev Angus Macdonald Archbishop of Edinburgh who was in favour of this great work of Reparation In 1908 this Archconfraternity was granted the privilege to recruit members in all countries where there was not yet one existing This privilege was renewed in 1920 and on the 27th April 1923 a Pontifical Brief signed by His Holiness Pius XI raised it to the dignity of Arch confraternity Prima Primaria without however restricting the privileges of Other Archconfraternities erected previously to this Brief Membership To attain its end the Archconfraternity enrols members zelators honorary promoters and benefactors and establishes local confraternities To be enrolled as a member nothing more is required than to forward one s Christian and surname or religious name to be registered on the official Register kept at St Philip s Priory Chelmsford and to take upon oneself the duties of membership Obligation of a member consists of hearing a second Mass on a Sunday or Holyday of Obligation Should this be too difficult any other day of the week will suffice If this also were inconvenient then a member can fulfil his her obligation by a Holy Communion received with the intention of Reparation With regard to priest members they can discharge their obligation by making a special memento of Reparation when they celebrate Holy Mass on a day of precept In this case however they

  • The Order of Canons Regular of Prémontre
    great spiritual renewal among thousands of people On July 25 th 1126 St Norbert was ordained archbishop of Magdeburg and relinquished the leadership of the Order to Blessed Hugh of Fosse so that Norbert could begin the work of shepherding his new diocese During his years as archbishop St Norbert constantly fought for the freedom of the Church and proved a devoted and loyal son of the Roman Pontiff His labours and travels took a toll on his health and he died in his cathedral city on June 6 th 1134 To this day the whole Church celebrates his feast on the anniversary of his death St Norbert is usually depicted with the cross and pallium of an archbishop and holds a monstrance which recalls his abiding devotion to Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament The Order is known by many different names Our official title is The Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré but we are also known as the Norbertines after our holy founder and as the Premonstratensians after our mother house in France In England we are also known as the White Canons because of the colour of our habit After our names we put the abbreviation O Praem which is Latin for Ordo Praemonstratensis the Order of Prémontré In addition to St Norbert there are 14 saints of the order recognised by the Church with their own liturgical feast days Beyond this list there are hundreds of members of the Order who have distinguished themselves by great holiness of life and for service to the Church Notable among these in recent years is the late Father Werenfried Van Straaten founder of Aid to the Church in Need popularly known as The Bacon Priest At the heart of the life of the Canons Regular of Prémontré is the idea of communio This is often characterised by five points i Laus Deo in Choro The praise of God in choir through the chanting of the Divine Office and the worthy celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass has long been a hallmark of our life The principle obligation of the canons in the priory is the singing or chanting of the Divine Office publicly and solemnly in the name of the Church it includes the Conventual Mass since the Mass is the highest form of prayer This obligation is the first end of the Order of Canons Regular of Prémontré it is indeed proper to all Orders of Canons Regular Pius XI said of the Order You are my Order Just as bishops have their canons delegated to offer public prayer in their diocese in the same way you are my canons not just for one diocese but for the universal Church ii Zelus animarum zeal for souls or the care of souls is the second end of the Canons Regular of Prémontré Basing our lives on that of the Apostles we are bound to give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the Word Having
