We are an apostolic religious family of priests and brothers bound together in one indivisible brotherhood in service to the Church and in a communal response to the Lord’s mission.
It was the Lord Jesus Calling Us.
Consecration. Brotherhood. Mission.
Holy Cross Identity
To Make God Known, Loved, and Served
Our mission sends us across borders of every sort. But wherever we go, we go as men vowed to God and to one another, witnessing to the Gospel and supporting men and women of goodwill in their efforts to form communities of the coming kingdom.
“I am convinced that Providence, which has in the past done everything necessary for the development and perfection of its work, will continue to bestow on it most abundant blessings. To ensure this, we must be constantly animated by the spirit of zeal and generosity which so holy an undertaking requires.”
Blessed Basil Moreau, Circular Letter 9
Educators in the Faith

We Are Men with Hope to Bring
Holy Cross is God’s work. What started as a small seed has grown into a mighty tree. It is sanctification for the priests and brothers who have dedicated their lives to the service of the Lord and his Church through ministries of education, parish, and mission. It is the knowledge of salvation and hope in the cross of Christ for all whom they serve.
