Frater Urban Hannon, O.Praem. is a seminarian with the Canons Regular of Prémontré, at St. Michael's Abbey in Orange, California. He was born in Tennessee and raised mostly in Texas, but New York City is the place he calls home outside the monastery. Frater Urban did his undergraduate work at Columbia, where he triple-majored in philosophy, religion, and medieval studies, while also serving as co-president of Columbia Catholic Undergraduates. After college he worked in young adult outreach for the Archdiocese of New York, taught group fitness classes in the city, and worked as a paralegal. He did his IL year of law school at NYU, before deciding to enter religious life with the Norbertines.
Frater Urban (then "Michael W. Hannon") has given lectures at Notre Dame, Yale, and the United Nations, and he has published essays in First Things, Fare Forward, Public Discourse, and Ethika Politika.
