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 are soon to be erected a Public Association of the Faithful within the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter and has already begun testing vocations.
    The Canons Regular of St. Gilbert of Sempringham (GSmp), shepherded by Fr. Robert-Charles Bengry under the Augustinian Rule, is a part of a wider spiritual family of Gilbertines, currently in a variety of states of formation, that include Sisters and Companions, who gather in support of a particular parish and encourage a life of prayer, presence and service.
    Gilbertine Sisters, Brothers and Canons Regular observe the three evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience with vows. As Gilbertines they are steeped in the English experience of St. Benedict’s Rule as they strive to live in harmony with God and one another. They seek God in the ordinary things of life and are known for their love of God and love of neighbour.

May God “bring us all together to everlasting life” (RB 72:12)
