To help us enter into Lent, Fr. P.A. Devadoss, C.S.C., reflects on how God asks us to be lent in service of others.
Around the World
In 1978, Holy Cross missionaries from Uganda established Holy Cross Parish in Dandora. Originally planned for only 40,000 residents, Dandora quickly swelled into a teeming home of over a quarter million, most of whom are poor. The parish remains the center of the work of the Congregation in Kenya.
Holy Cross also has been instrumental in Catholic Higher Education in the country, including serving as a founding member of Tangaza College in Nairobi, which provides theological training for seminarians of religious congregations. Nairobi is also the home of the formation house for the Congregation’s professed seminarians and brothers in East Africa.
Fr. Raymond will take over as President of Holy Cross Family Ministries from Fr. Phalen on July 1, 2014.
The Congregation in the United States celebrated the Final Profession of Br. Nich Perez, C.S.C., on Saturday, February 15.
"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."
