Known for their white habits, penchant for service, and intellectual rigor, the Norbertines in Southern California are revolutionizing the way that religious orders use the digital space. They have launched a new, innovative digital Advent calendar that will engage Catholics around the world. This new digital Advent calendar will include daily reflections, videos, music, commentaries, gifts and more. Every day will bring a new and different way of engaging the faithful, and will help them prepare their hearts and minds for Christmas.

The digital Advent calendar follows the Norbertines other successful digital innovations, including the Abbot’s Circle and the web television series City of Saints.

“We are thrilled to launch this exciting new digital Advent calendar, which we hope will help everyday Catholics prepare their hearts and minds for Christmas,” said Fr. Charbel Grbavac. “Our order was founded by St. Norbert, a Catholic reformer who sought to renew the Church in difficult times and to preach to the faithful, and we have been working recently to use digital media as a new way to fulfill his mission and engage the faithful and renew the Church.”
