Each year, the United States Province recognizes its Jubilarians. Priests and brothers commemorating 25th, 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th, or 75th anniversaries of ordination or religious profession, gather for Mass and dinner with their friends and family to celebrate their years of love and service to the Church. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Jubilarians were not able to gather on May 22, as previously planned. The 2021 Jubilee booklet, featuring pictures of all Holy Cross religious celebrating their Jubilee year, as well as biographies from those religious celebrating 25 and 50 years can be found below.
