Canons Regular of St. John Cantius


In September of 2011, friends of the Canons Regular of Saint John Cantius gathered with priests and brothers of the order for an elegant meal, lively entertainment, and one another’s company at the beautiful English-gothic style Cathedral room at the University Club of Chicago just steps from Chicago’s lakefront.

Live piano music was provided during the cocktail hour by the Director of the Gregory The Great Schola Cantorum, Mr. Joseph Urbaszewski, who delighted his listeners with popular piano music, ranging from ragtime to classical. During the dinner additional music was provided by strolling violinists.

As a special gift, guests received Praesepio Nativity Christmas Ornaments, as a little reminder of the beautiful Italian Praesepio in the museum at St. John Cantius.

The supporters of the Canons enjoyed bidding on the auction items to help raise additional funds which cover tuition costs for the seminarians as well as medical and insurance costs for all the members of the Canons Regular.

On behalf of all the members of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, and the five new men considering their vocation with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Father Phillip’s thanked those in attendance for their ongoing support as well as those whose efforts made the evening a success, especially Ms. Delphine Michalik and Mrs. Barb Caruso.

Your financial contributions, large or small, are greatly appreciated and will continue to help us support our men in formation.
