Apostolates of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius

by Shawn Tribe

One of the interesting things I learnt through Fr. Dennis Kolinski of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, was that the Canons Regular do operate in more than just their famed parish church of St. John Cantius itself.

The Canons now also have an additional parish apostolate, that of St. Peter's Parish in Volo, Illinois.

While on their website, you might also want to look at the beautiful retreat chapel of the Canons Regular, St. Anne's Chapel in Lawton, Michigan. The Eastern feel to the building is no mistake, having been constructed in Poland and then re-constructed in the United States for the Canons Regular.

What I love about these Priests is their sensus catholicus. They love the Liturgy not because they have a political agenda but because it represents the bride-feast of Christ and His Church.

what is the age limit for traditional vocations? i have heard of gentlemen up to 75 being admitted, but i think many are in their 40's and 50's these days.
though, i am hearing of many in their 40's and 50's being denied, too, from the texas dioceses. also, there are dioceses which preclude men from entering the seminary if they ahve been divorced.

would your readers comment on these questions. thank you
