“For each of us, there is a call — a stirring from deep within, inviting us in the quiet of our lives to ponder: What is it Lord, that you are asking of me,” explained Novice Master Fr. Ken Molinaro, C.S.C. “These men give voice to this inner yearning of the heart, as they publicly consecrate their life to God in the Congregation of Holy Cross. They never set aside their roots with their beloved family, but as they go forth from here, they will no longer depend on them for material support. What they absolutely need is continued love and encouragement.”
During the Mass, the newly professed received the Holy Cross habit as well as the Cross and Anchors as signs of their professed membership in the Congregation.
