Cardinal Cupich Approves
Constitutions of the
Canons Regular of St. John Cantius
he Canons Regular of St. John Cantius is a religious community of men dedicated to the restoration of the sacred.
Living in imitation of Christ, and radical opposition to the values of the world; they work to restore the sacred in the Church and their own lives, seeking the sanctification of all.
The mission of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, in the context of parish ministry, is to help Catholics rediscover a profound sense of the sacred through solemn liturgies, devotions, sacred art, sacred music, as well as instruction in Church heritage, catechetics, and Catholic culture.
Because the Eucharist Sacrifice is the summit and the source of all Christian worship and life, members of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius order their own lives, as well as their pastoral work in parish ministry, above all to the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours and the sacraments—the primary sources of life and grace within the Church.
