Parroquia Nuestra Madre Santisima de la Luz


In 1987, the Congregation of Holy Cross sent missionaries to take pastoral responsibility for Santo Tomás Moro, a large urban parish in the Archdiocese of Monterrey. Under the Congregation’s leadership, Santo Tomás Moro flourished, and in 1996 it was divided into two parishes. Holy Cross assumed leadership of the new parish, Nuestra Madre Santísima de La Luz.
Today, La Luz also offers a wide array of pastoral outreach and social services. As more local vocations have come to Holy Cross, the work of the Congregation continues to grow. Also near La Luz Parish is the Congregation’s House of Formation in Mexico.

Sacred Heart of Jesus

The heart of Jesus is viewed as a symbol of God's boundless and passionate love for mankind. Blessed Basile Moreau had a deep devotion to the Sacred Heart, and he consecrated the priests of Holy Cross to the precious Heart of Jesus.

Fr. Jim Gallagher, C.S.C. helps us contemplate the beauty of the wonderous Sacred Heart of Jesus.
