The U.S. Province is a community of about 500 priests, brothers and men in formation around the world who have answered Christ's call to serve Him through their vowed religious lives. The priests and brothers of Holy Cross work together zealously as “educators in the faith” and as "men with hope to bring" in education, parish and mission settings.
