United States


The United States was the second country to which Blessed Basile Moreau sent his religious as missionaries. The first group departed on August 5, 1841. Many years and much growth later, Holy Cross missionaries have departed from the U.S. to found new missions in Chile, Brazil, Ghana, Uganda, and Peru.

Today, the U.S. is home to the largest collection of Holy Cross religious. They work in education, parishes, and a host of other ministries from homeless centers to a theater production company in Hollywood.

Our Lady of Sorrows

Blessed Basile Moreau chose Mary under the title of Our Lady of Sorrows to be the special patroness of his religious family of priests, brothers, and sisters.

Fr. Ken Molinaro, C.S.C., helps us reflect how Our Lady of Srrows reveals the what and the how of religious life today in the Church and the world.
