A daughter foundation of St. Michael's Abbey in Silverado, California, the Corpus Christi Priory is a community of Norbertine canons regular who serve the church in Springfield and beyond as chaplains, scholars, teachers, and preachers.

Immersed in the 900-year tradition of our order, the Norbertine canons live a common life of liturgical prayer and care for souls. Founded by St. Norbert to reform clerical life, the Norbertines continue to honor this legacy of "being the Church at her best" through reverent liturgy, commitment to the fullness of Catholicism, and ardent lives of prayer.


We look forward to hearing from you.

Church Enterance

Parking and entrance to St. Francis of Assisi Church are located at the South Entrance. Once on campus, follow the road signs to Corpus Christi Priory and the Evermode Institute, park in the South lot, and enter through the South Entrance. Follow the signs to the Church (you'll go down several corridors and up one floor by elevator) to enter the Church.

Thank you for your patience while we address the question of a more intuitive church entrance.
