Our mission sends us across borders of every sort. Often, we must make ourselves at home among more than one people or culture, reminding us again that the farther we go in giving, the more we stand to receive.
— Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Constitution 2:17
International borders are not the only borders we cross. The Holy Cross mission, as stated in our Constitutions, has lead the United States Province to sponsor apostolates that reach across all types of socio-economic, cultural and linguistic borders to carry out the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ to people who might not otherwise hear the Good News.
