Around the World
France is the birthplace of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Within three years of his founding of Holy Cross in 1837, Blessed Basile Moreau was sending missionaries not just around the French countryside, but around the world.
Today the Congregation continues to work in schools and parishes in France. Holy Cross also welcomes pilgrims to its conventual church, Notre Dame de Sainte Croix, which was built by Moreau and now serves as the International Shrine dedicated to his spiritual legacy.
The Superior General, has appointed Fr. Paul-Élie Cadet, C.S.C., to follow Fr. John DeRiso, C.S.C., as Rector of the International Shrine to Basile Moreau in France.
Thirteen novices representing four Holy Cross jurisdictions professed First Vows on May 25. The day before, 13 new novices were received into the Indian Novitiate.
St. André Bessette
Brother André Bessette, C.S.C., is the first canonized saint of the Congregation of Holy Cross. He was known as the "Miracle Man of Montreal" for all the people who were miraculously healed through his intercession and prayers.
Br. Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C., Vicar and First General Assistant of the Congregation, reflects on how this humble brother who welcomed the sick and suffering with God's love and mercy can guide us to our Savior, Jesus Christ.
