Around the World
The Congregation’s thriving presence in East Africa began with the arrival of Holy Cross to Uganda in 1958. The first group of missionaries was led by Servant of God, Vincent J. McCauley, C.S.C. The Congregation immediately began working to build up the local church in the region.
Only in the 1980s did Holy Cross itself begin to accept local vocations. Since then, the Congregation has been quickly growing in the country and the wider region. Holy Cross runs two parishes and two secondary schools in Uganda. The country is also home to the Congregation’s Novitiate in East Africa.
Mr. Ashish Aloysius Rozario, C.S.C., Mr. Paschal Babu Sarker, C.S.C., and Mr. Joseph Bagnar Gonsalvez, C.S.C., professed Final Vows and were ordained deacons in April 2015.
Founded by Fr. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., Ave celebrated its 150th Anniversary with two events. It is one of the oldest continuous Catholic publishing houses in the Untied States.
The first canonized saint of the Congregation of Holy Cross is a humble, uneducated religious brother from Canada that became known as the "Miracle Man of Montreal" due to the miraculous healings worked through his intercession.
Fr. Patrick Hannon, C.S.C., helps us reflect on St. André Bessette and how this "improbable saint" can help us all become saints in our own lives.
