We are honored to embrace your Mass requests. Masses are offered by Holy Cross priests primarily in the United States. However, a few may be acquitted in East Africa, South America, or Bangladesh.
A Place of Hope
Light a Candle at the Grotto
At the Grotto on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, hundreds of votive candles burn brightly night and day as expressions of prayer for special intentions.
The living flame of each candle is a beautiful symbol of both prayer and hope. At the Grotto, one special perpetual candle is maintained to symbolize and commemorate the special needs and intentions requested from our community of faith who participate in the Confraternity.
Perpetual Prayer Enrollment
Request Golden Treasury Enrollment. Those enrolled in the Golden Treasury of Holy Cross are supported by the perpetual prayers, Masses, and good works of our priests, brothers, and seminarians throughout the world. They also benefit from the perpetual prayers of their brothers and sisters in the Association.
Your financial gift will be used to help support the education of our seminarians and for the care of our ill and retired priests and brothers.
On February 11, 1858, the Virgin Mary made the first of many appearances to St. Bernadette Soubirous. Today, millions of Catholics from around the world travel to Lourdes, France, to follow Our Lady’s instruction to St. Bernadette to “drink at the spring and wash yourself in it.” St. Bernadette uncovered a hidden spring after the Virgin Mary instructed her to dig at the ground. This Lourdes water comes from the same spring at the Grotto of Massabielle where Our Lady of Lourdes appeared to St. Bernadette.
Holy Cross Prayer Cards can commemorate a wedding anniversary, birthday, First Communion, Christmas, or any other special occasion. In addition to the assurance of prayers, these cards have the option of Mass Intentions.
Holy Cross Prayer Cards have individually crafted expressions of caring for people who are important to us, while at the same time supporting the ministries of the priests and brothers of Holy Cross.
Caring is shown through the physical presence of the card combined with the assurance of prayers from our priests.
