Canonesses Regular of Mary, Cause of Our Joy

Welcome graphic

***A proposed charism which will begin as a CAMM/CCMM Congregational Recluse prayerfully supporting the Social Services Division.***

The Canonesses Regular of Mary, Cause of Our Joy are to offer God continual praise and thanksgiving for Mary's Immaculate Conception, and her "fiat" which brought us joy through her Son, Jesus Christ.

The habit will be medium blue with white rochet worn during liturgical functions, and medium blue veil.


The Canonesses will follow the Rule of St. Augustine, with statutes developed for the community.


There is no age limit, save that given by Canon Law before one can enter the novitiate--17.
