Congregation of Holy Cross

Congregation of Holy Cross - Notre Dame, IN
When Blessed Basil Moreau formed the Congregation of Holy Cross, he exhorted his religious to conform themselves to Christ by trusting in Divine Providence. He called us to find hope in the Cross of self-emptying love, to stand by others as the Mother of Sorrows stood by her Son Jesus Christ and to work together zealously as educators in faith. Blessed Moreau dedicated each branch of Holy Cross to a patron: Priests to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; Brothers to the pure heart of Saint Joseph; and Sisters to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mary, Our Lady of Sorrows, was established as the special patroness for all of the Congregation Holy Cross.
