Mother Mary Augustine and six Sisters came to Tehachapi in May of 2000, following the founding of their community in 1997. They now number thirty five Sisters and are growing. The Norbertine Order was founded in 1121 and is one of the oldest religious orders of the Roman Catholic Church. The Tehachapi community is the first foundation of Norbertine Canonesses in the United States. Their entire life is centered around daily Mass and chanting of the seven canonical hours of the Divine Office, celebrated together in choir and, with their other prayers, encompassing about 7 to 8 hours each day.
The Canonesses have a dedicated email prayer request line (firstname.lastname@example.org), receiving prayer requests daily from around the globe and responding individually to each request. They also receive prayer intentions via phone (661-823-1066), mail and in-person visits.
