In the heart of the city lies the beating heart of Christ, the Sacred Most Venerable Heart of our Savior. Here we labor in this unique corner of his garden to seed the mystery of the sacred. The restoration of the sacred is to restore the person to God.

Can you be our helping hands to restore the sacred? Even a little goes a long way to sustain our primary mission, and that of a faithful answer to put out into the deep.

Your support will assure the Church of priest who will continue help in the Restoration of the Sacred, especially as we begin to expand into other parishes, so in need of priests.

Canons Regular of St. John Cantius is creating a community of men dedicated to the Restoration of the Sacred. The need is great for patrons of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius. The word patron comes from the Latin patronus, meaning, “one who defends or supports”. We need partners in the ‘Restoration of the Sacred’.

For the cost of one latte a week, you can help support a man who is called to the priesthood to study at the seminary. Together, we can help form the next generation of holy priests that will be entrusted to carry on the Catholic Faith.are you called sjc 02
The tuition bill for each seminarian is $40,000 per year.  We currently have four men studying at Mundelein Seminary, with the hopes of sending seven seminarians for the 2018/2019 school year. The cost of sending these young men to the seminary is a financial strain on our community. Every amount helps bring these young men closer 'to the Altar of God' (Psalm 43:4).

We cannot do this without your support. Your monthly contribution will be used towards the seminary bill and insurance costs for the community. Together, with your patronage, we can help Restore the Sacred and make sure the beautiful traditions of the Catholic faith are preserved. Thank you especially for supporting us with your prayers!
