Service in a Time of Pandemic

Recently, a group of young priests traveled to Phoenix, Ariz., to assist at AndréHouse, the Holy Cross apostolate that serves the homeless in the area. We invite you to look over the material on this page to learn more about their experience of brotherhood and service in these unprecedented times.

Serving in a Time of Pandemic – Part I

During the pandemic André House in Phoenix, Ariz., continues to minister poor and homeless in the area. Because of concern for their volunteers, they are only operating with a core community of holy cross religious.

Serving in a Time of Pandemic – Part II

Every day at André House begins with the staff there gathered for Mass in the smaller dining room. It is a recognition of exactly what our constitutions state: that the mission is the Lord’s, and that He is the one who gives the strength for it, and of the necessity to pull away as a community for rest, prayer and worship.

Serving in a Time of Pandemic – Part III

One of the things that we as Holy Cross religious hang our hat on is our sense of hospitality. We take great pride in being able to welcome and host, to bring in and provide a sense of community. In fact, André House is called a “House of Hospitality,” rather than a soup kitchen, homeless shelter or drop-in center.
