Tamil Nadu, India


The mission in East Bengal, which encompasses part of present-day India, was one of the missions established by our founder, Blessed Basile Moreau. In 1853, the first Holy Cross religious arrived to the region. The Congregation's principal work was to establish the local Church and to evangelize. Despite many hardships, the missionaries through zeal and perseverance were able to convert several villages to Christianity and to construct the infrastructure for the Church.

Presently Holy Cross continues to administer in India with many parishes, schools, and social and missionary outreach programs.

Saint Joseph

Pope Francis has proclaimed this to be the "Year of St. Joseph." This year was established to reaffirm St. Joseph's patronage in the Church and, “to encourage us to implore his intercession and to imitate his virtues and his zeal" (Patris Corde).

We are pleased to share with you “Go to Joseph,” a video reflection by Br. George Schmitz, C.S.C., in which he thoughtfully presents the humanity of Joseph, his unwavering commitment to God’s will, and the manifestation of God’s love in his life.
