    Ave Crux is a magazine published by the Office of Vocations. Each year, Ave Crux profiles new seminarians, ordinations to the priesthood, as well as shares the variety of calls to many different ministries of Holy Cross priests and brothers around the world. 

    Venerable Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., and Holy Cross Family Ministries

    In this special edition of Ave Crux we examine the life and legacy of Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C. Born to a poor Catholic family, Father Peyton's miraculous recovery from tuberculosis forged an iron bond with the woman to whom he attributed his recovery; The Blessed Virgin Mary. Armed with utmost confidence in her, Father Peyton traveled the world to spread devotion to her through recitation of the family Rosary. Even though Father Peyton has passed on to his eternal reward, he lives on in the many ministries inspired by his work including Family Rosary, Family Theater Productions, Father Peyton Family Institutes, Catholic Mom, and the Museum of Family Prayer. Pray, The Story of Patrick Peyton, a documentary about his life, was released in 2020. The film is available on DVD or for digital purchase on ITunes, Amazon, and Google Play.

    Even though we are still being vigilant against the Covid-19 Virus, we were able to celebrate Final Vows this Fall!

    Ordinations to the Priesthood

Though they've been classmates since Old Collge, their path through formation has been unique for both of them, and has ultimately led them into two very different apostolates. However, they will always be brother priests in Holy Cross.


    What We Do and Who We Are

    In this second edition of our newly designed vocation magazine; Ave Crux, we share the stories of three Holy Cross priests. Each of them serves in one of the three main ministerial charisms of the Congregation; Education, Parish and Mission. These three priests share examples of serving the people of God in very different ways, and yet each brings a distinctly Holy Cross character to his life and work.
