Patrons


From the earliest days, Blessed Basil Moreau envisioned his new Congregation being modeled after the Holy Family. Not surprisingly then, he entrusted each of the three branches of Holy Cross to an individual patron within the Holy Family. The priests of Holy Cross are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The brothers of Holy Cross, drawing upon their beginnings with Fr. Jaques Dujarie as the Brothers of St. Joseph, are consecrated to St. Joseph. The sisters of Holy Cross are consecrated to Mary under the title of Our Lady of Sorrows.

The entire Congregation is also placed under the patronage of Our Lady of Sorrows.
