Photos from the Solemn Premonstratensian rite

As many have noticed, one mission that the NLM has set for itself is to promote the various traditional liturgical rites found in the West.

To that end, I'm delighted to present some pictures of a solemn Mass in the Premonstratensian rite from the Norbertine Abbey of Frigolet near Avignon. The photographs date to around the mid 1950's.

More such photos may be forthcoming. I thank the Norbertine who kindly sent these to me and who is looking for more such.
