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.
On April 24 and 25, the Province of South India celebrated its second and third priestly Ordinations out of a total of five for 2019.
