Confederation of the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine

With the decree of the Sacred Congregation of religious July 2, 1961, Canons Regular of the Immaculate Conception became a part of the Confederation of the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine.

It was on May 4, 1959 Blessed Pope John XXIII founded the Confederation of  the Canons Regular of St. Augustine with his apostolic letterCaritas Unitas on the 900th anniversary of the First Lateran Synod. Like his predecessor, Pope Saint Gregory VII, he wished to promote the canonical life in the modern world. He chose similar means as the First Lateran Synod: exhortation, not legislation. The Confederation is a union of charity that binds nine congregations of canons regular together for mutual aid and support.
