Who We Are
Religious of the Congregation of Holy Cross, an international community with a global presence and perspective ministering in English Canada, serve in parishes as educators in the faith and men with hope to bring to our world. Inspired by our missionary founder, Blessed Basil Moreau C.S.C. and by the spirit and teaching of Vatican Council II, we serve in the local Church to actively promote collaboration with laypersons, so that a parish entrusted to us lives as a sign, instrument and foretaste of the Reign of God.
A vision for the Mission of the ministry in parishes for the Region of English Canada identifies ways the members of our Region and our parish communities ought to be increasingly transformed by Christ. Our vision entails a picture of what we could be and should be to inspire our parish community to experience the Reign of God. This vision is our view of what our Holy Cross contribution should be for the better or preferred future of the parishes entrusted to us.
The following are characteristics of this vision desired by religious of Holy Cross ministering in parishes.
