The General Council prepares for its meeting in December after a frutiful first meeting October 17-21 at the Holy Cross Generalate in Rome, Italy.
Around the World
On November 20, 2016, Pope Francis named Patrick D'Rosario, C.S.C., Archbishop of Dhaka, to the College of Cardinals. His creation as the first Cardinal from Bangladesh is a tangible fruit of the Congregation's mission in East Bengal, which dates back to 1851.
Today, in the predominantly Muslim country of Bangladesh, Holy Cross is known for the excellence of its educational institutions and its solidarity with the poor.
The Congregation celebrates the second Cardinal in its history and the first-ever Cardinal from Bangladesh.
The newly professed and new novices in Bangladesh are a mixture of members of the Society of Brothers and the Society of Priests.
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.
