Holy Week and Easter at St John Cantius in Chicago

As a special follow up to this year’s Holy Week and Easter photopost series, here are photos of all five parts from St John Cantius in Chicago. As our readers know well, the Canons Regular of this church celebrate the Ordinary Form in a truly examplary manner, with beautiful sacred music and an ars celebrandi truly worthy of the sacred rites. On Easter Sunday morning, the community welcomed His Excellency Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, for the celebration of a Pontifical High Mass. We always receive more photos than we have space for, and the selection of images for these posts involves making a lot of painful choices, but it was especially difficult to narrow these down to just 50 - our thanks to the Canons Regular for sharing them with us!
