While having ministered in Mexico for over a century, the Congregation sent missionaries in 1987 to take over Santo Tomás Moro, a large urban parish in the Archdiocese of Monterrey. When the parish was divided in two in 1996, Holy Cross stayed with the poorer part, named Nuestra Madre Santísima de La Luz, walking side by side with the poor there.
Today, the Congregation continues to serve in that same parish and those same neighborhoods. In addition, Holy Cross has taken responsibility for a second parish, this time in the state of San Luis Potosi. It has also brought Holy Cross Families to Mexico to evangelize and strength families.
On the Feast of the Sacred Heart, Deacon Jorge Armando Morales Trejo, C.S.C., was ordained a priest in Gaudalupe, Mexico.

"I also think of the time that I visited St. Joseph’s Oratory in Monreal, Canada, and saw the rooms full of crutches and testimonies and other gifts sent to Br. André in thanksgiving for miracles received. So many people touched by the grace of God through a man who did not have some of the usual credentials for great influence in the world: wealth, education, social status," writes Fr. Eric Schimmel, C.S.C.
"To stop there, however, misses another level to the story. Christ was more than a miracle worker. He is our Savior. He also is a great teacher and usually uses stories to teach."
