Canons Regular of St. John Cantius

About Us

Schedule

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius pray in common at the Divine Office, Holy Mass and the Rosary each day, but also foster private prayer and meditation. Because a daily Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament is particularly important as a means to enter more deeply into a personal conversation and union with Our Lord, it constitutes a regular element of the schedule of common prayer. (From the Constitutions of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius)
