A ministry of prayer, presence & service...
A small group of Canons Regular, based in Calgary, Alberta, provide for an urban renewal of Gilbertine spirituality in service of St. John the Evangelist in the historic Inglewood neighbourhood. They will be erected a Public Association of the Faithful within the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter and have already begun testing vocations with the arrival of their first postulant.
Gilbertines gather in support of a particular parish and neighbourhood and seek to live a life of Catholic prayer, presence and service by observing the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience. Gilbertines, being of the voluntary poor of Christ, seek God in the ordinary things of life and hope to be known for their love of God and love of neighbour.
May God “bring us all together to everlasting life” (RB 72:12)
