What drew you to Holy Cross? The joy and witness of the Holy Cross priests and brothers on campus first drew me to religious life. It was in learning about Holy Cross’ spirituality and its focus on showing the world hope through the cross – as well as in Our Lady of Sorrows, the Congregation’s patroness – that I fell in love with the order.
