About the Speaker:
Msgr. Canary was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, and is the third of four children. He attended Christ the King Parish grade school and was one of eleven graduates to go to Quigley Seminary for high school. In his youth, he enjoyed playing basketball, skiing and playing tennis. With the wisdom that comes with age, he now focuses his leisurely pursuits mainly on golf.
Msgr. Canary completed graduate work at the University of San Francisco where he studied the writings of St. John of the Cross. He believes St. John offers much wisdom for us today as we live our lives in faith. Msgr. Canary completed his Doctorate in Ministry with a concentration on the experience of transition as a paradigm for the Paschal Mystery.
Following retirement at the customary age for priests in the Archdiocese of Chicago, Msgr. Canary took up residence at the Cardinal Stritch Retreat House in Mundelein, and in 2016 became the Director of the Retreat House.
