In the spring of 2018 we celebrated the Ordination of Fr. Brendan McAleer, C.S.C., Fr. Christopher Brennan, C.S.C., and Fr. Timothy Weed, C.S.C. Learn a little more about each of these men, what led them to the priesthood, their experiences diaconate ministry, and why they are looking forward to their lives as Holy Cross priests.
In this exciting fall issue we are proud to introduce you to our new Seminarians. Our new Old Collegians, and our new Postulants are an outstanding group of young men, and we're sure that you will enjoy getting to know each of them a little better. Also, included in this issue, we include a brief introduction of Fr. Tim Mouton, C.S.C. Fr. Tim joined the vocations office over the summer as our new Associate Director. Welcome Fr. Tim!
In this spring edition Ave Crux, we give you a closer look at the stories of our Ordinandi; Fr. Michael Palmer, C.S.C., and Fr. Ryan Pietrocarlo, C.S.C. 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.
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.
