  • We drive from the Northwest suburbs every Sunday to attend mass here. The first time I proposed to do the trip my husband balked at the thought but changed his mind from the moment we attended our first mass at St John Cantius. The breathtaking beauty of the place and truly angelic sacred music are only surpassed by the deep reverence and prayerful Latin and NO services. Also, confessions are offered before the masses O Sunday, something few Catholic parishes offer nowadays!! No watered down catholicism here. We are blessed to have found this wonderful place to worship God as He must.
  • My husband son and his friend from home went to the 9:00 AM mass after moving my son in to the neighborhood. After mass we walked the church grounds and met the pastor Phillip. He met us by chance in the outside garden and casually strolled the church grounds and shared the history of St. John's with us. What a wonderful welcome my son had to the new neighborhood. It was very welcoming and felt like home.
  • In one word-REVERENCE! The Masses are beautiful, spiritually uplifting, and the music makes you feel like you're the gates of Heaven themselves. After , the Mass, mammy of the priests are there to greet you and answer questions. Being there is a wonderful faith experience.
  • Beautiful church and reverent masses, done in both the 1962 and 1970 versions of the Roman Missal.
  • Not only a beautiful place, but such a powerful atmosphere of prayer
