The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius is a religious community of men dedicated to the restoration of the Sacred. The community was founded in 1998 under Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. and now has over 30 members from the United States, Canada, and Poland. Currently the Canons Regular serve in three parishes in two dioceses: St. John Cantius Parish in Chicago, St. Peter Parish in Volo, and St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Springfield, Illinois.


The Canons imitate Christ, live in radical opposition to the values of the world, and work to restore the sacred in the Church and in their own lives, seeking the sanctification of all.
