Holy Cross Jubilees

Holy Cross Jubilees


    Each year, the United States Province recognizes its Jubilarians. Priests and brothers commemorating 25th, 50th, 60th, 65th or 70th 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 Jubilarians will not be able to gather on May 22, as previously planned, but we still want to celebrate them here. Watch for an update to this page with the 2020 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.
