Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem to Leave Saint Louis

The Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem, a religious order living under the Rule of Saint Augustine, apparently will be leaving the Archdiocese of Saint Louis because of the pending loss of their priory due to real estate development. For the time being, Dom Daniel will be teaching with the Norbertines in Silverado, California (in the Los Angeles area), while the fraters will be starting theological studies at the Angelicum in Rome. A new postulant to the CRNJ will also be living with the Norbertine Fathers.

The Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem are not disbanding, but rather are very poor and in need of funding.

Update: Good News-- Traditional Mass in West County Will Continue Despite Canons' Departure

  1. I am sad to see the Canons leave. They were very kind to include my late girlfriend Lisa in their prayers although I did not ask them. They also showed wonderful hospitality at their recent picnic.
