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.
Fr. Charlie Kohlerman, C.S.C., leads us into the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and His compassion and love for us, on the day of its celebration.
The 18 men who professed First Vows in Holy Cross on May 28 represent all four jursdictions of the Congregation in India. Sixteen new men entered the Novitiate to follow them.
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.
