A young man interested in pursuing a vocation with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius should first contact the community in order to arrange for a visit. All interested applicants are asked to live with the community for at least a few days to becoming more closely acquainted with the common life in the Canons Regular and its charism.

Rather than attend a vocational retreat, young men visit our community and participate in the “restoration of the sacred” by praying and working with the members of the Canons Regular according to the daily schedule.

During this “Vocational Visit,” interested applicants meet with the Superior to ask questions and learn more about the community, its formation, charism and apostolate. Many of the men who visit the Canons Regular then go forward to make their application.

If you are interested in discerning a vocation with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius let us know when you would like to schedule your “Vocational Visit.”
