Premonstratensians in England

Some English Norbertines (Premonstratensians) recently sent me a link to a vocations blog some of their membership has started.

I was particularly interested in a post from August showing some of their first ordinations.

(The first Mass; wonderfully, celebrated ad orientem)

They certainly seem to have a dignified chapel and altar at their disposal. The decorative motifs on the wall by the altar remind one of the sort of thing that Pugin designed, and the altar itself seems to be made of dignified materials -- not to mention design.

A gallery of other photos are available here.
