“Oh, God, to know you is life.

To serve You is freedom.

To praise You is the soul’s

joy and delight.”

–St. Augustine


Are you called to a vocation with
the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius?

   Some questions for Reflection:

 Do you desire to grow in holiness?

 Are you attracted to a life of prayer?

 Do you wish to live for the common good over your own interests?

 Do you feel ready to lay aside your life to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ?
