Initials after priests name


#1

Hi,

I'm a newly confirmed catholic and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the initials CMJ after a priests name stood for? I have searched but didn't see it coinciding with any orders. Thanks

The only thing connected to religion I can find is Anglican.

Yes, there are Anglicans who have CMJ. If it's Catholic, is it possibly CJM? That would be the Congregation of Jesus and Mary which is a French religious order I think. Or could it be CMI (Carmelites of Mary Immaculate)? That's Indian.

I believe it stands for Congregation of Jesus and Mary.

I found it here: catholicdoors.com/misc/abbrev.htm

Thanks very much everyone. It could very well be CJM instead, maybe it's a typo on the bulletins we get on Sunday but figure someone might have noticed by now. He has been at the church for a few months, and is listed as an associate pastor if that makes a difference. It could be angelican as well
