Parish Staff


Rev. C. Frank Phillips, C.R. — Pastor

Fr. Phillips received a Master of Divinity degree from St. Louis University. A member of the Congregation of the Resurrection, he was ordained a priest in January of 1977. He taught Music history and theory, choir, and religion at Weber High School for 11 years. In 1988 he was assigned as pastor of St. John Cantius Parish. Father Phillips is a knight of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, a knight of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George, as well as a Conventual Chaplain ad honorem in the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

Fr. Phillips has done much to restore a landmark Polish-American Parish and renew its sense of mission. Mass is offered in both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms, in Latin and in English. Saint John Cantius Parish is renowned for its commitment to renewing the sacred liturgy and classical Church Music.

In 1998 Fr. Phillips founded the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, a Roman Catholic religious community of men dedicated to the restoration of the sacred in the context of parish ministry. Its mission is to help Catholics rediscover a profound sense of the scared through worship, art, and an appreciation of the Church’s heritage. Its mission is reflected in the community’s motto: Instaurare Sacra (Restoration of the Sacred).
