Author: Dom Daniel Augustine Oppenheimer, CRNJ

The Very Reverend Daniel Augustine Oppenheimer, CRNJ, is the founding prior of the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem, a clerical institute of consecrated life in the diocese of Wheeling Charleston whose members (known as canons) pursue the proper apostolic ends of their religious society. By pronouncing the ancient vows of Stability, Conversion of Life and Obedience and living a common life according to the specific form of the institute, each member consciously strives towards the perfection of charity. The Canons Regular celebrate The Divine Liturgy in its traditional Latin, in the august Eucharistic Sacrifice, Divine Office and other rites and ceremonies of the Church.
