DE PERE — The Norbertine Center for Spirituality will temporarily shut down due to the negative impact of the coronavirus. The announcement was made Aug. 13 by St. Norbert Abbey.

“We hoped the coronavirus might have abated by now so that the center’s programs could fully resume by the end of summer. This is not the case and we need to keep our staff, participants and Norbertine residents safe,”  Abbot Dane Radecki said in a news release. “In the coming weeks I will appoint a small committee to help plan for a reopening during the summer or fall of 2021.”

With the temporary closure of the center, all reservations made for the month of August will be honored.

This past spring, the center initiated virtual programming. However, the gathering of groups has been limited, the center said. The spiritual direction program resumed this summer, however, and will continue during this temporary closure.

The Norbertine Center for Spirituality is a ministry of St. Norbert Abbey. It is a spiritual resource for people of all faiths and backgrounds who wish to deepen their relationship with God. It was founded in 1979 by Norbertine Fr. Joel Garner.
