Canons Regular Annual Retreat


“Members of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius observe an annual

communal retreat.”

~ Constitutions of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius



Fulfilling the obligations of Canons Law and their Constitutions, The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius will be away from their parishes, together on their annual retreat from August 3-7, 2020.


In preparation for the retreat the Superior General Very Rev. Joshua S. Caswell, SJC wrote “I believe the graces that God wants to give us are numerous given the task God has set out for us as a community. We need this time to really ground ourselves in prayer, and recalibrate. Just the fact that we make ourselves available for those few days, God can do wonders.”


This brief time away from their parishes, relieved of obligations and schoolbooks, will provide a time of prayer to reflection; strengthening the bonds of community and focusing on the Canon’s charism of ‘Restoration of the Sacred.’


Please remember the Canons Regular in your prayers during this week and be assured that the Canons will be praying for their parishioners and supporters during their retreat.
