Around the World
Blessed Basile Moreau sent the first missionaries of Holy Cross to the United States in 1841. After settling near South Bend, Indiana, in 1842, where they would found the University of Notre Dame and St. Joseph Parish, Holy Cross quickly spread throughout the rest of the country.
The Congregation grew with the country, as the United States became the country with the largest number of Holy Cross religious. Missionaries have gone out from the United States around the world, while within the country, Holy Cross has been known for a strong commitment to Catholic education at all levels.
Fr. Joy Franco Biswas, C.S.C., who completed his initial formation in Canada, was ordained in his home country of Bangladesh.
The new juniorate, is the St. Joseph Province’s second high school-level formation program in Bangladesh and attempts to expand vocation recruitment.
