Canons Regular of St. John Cantius Welcome Postulants




“Because God has made us for Himself, our hearts are restless until they rest in Him.”


~Saint Augustine


With thanks to God on the feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, and the birthday of our patron St. John Cantius, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius welcomed six postulants.


Ranging in age from 18 - 39 these men came from all over the country to follow Christ and His teachings in a radical way, to help become Restorers of the Sacred in His church.


Superior General Very Rev. Joshua S. Caswell, SJC welcomed the men saying ”Today this community of brothers joyfully welcomes you. May this period of Postulancy be for you a time of grace and blessing.“


Br. Mark Visconti, Novice Director, is entrusted with the formation and care of this class of postulants. During this period of formal discernment Br. Mark will lead the candidates to a fuller understanding of the common life as they live as brothers, joining in work and prayer.


Through participation in the Liturgical Office and Mass the postulants will gain a greater understanding of what it takes to become ‘zealous restorers of the Sacred’ with the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius.
