The Fest of Patroness of HolyCross on September 15, 2017
The Fest of Patroness of HolyCross was celebrated on September 15, 2017
When deciding on a patron for the Congregation of Holy Cross, founder Blessed Basil Moreau selected Our Lady of Sorrows.
Moreau’s original vision was that the Congregation of Holy Cross be one community of priests, brothers and sisters living and working together
in imitation of the Holy Family. He consecrated the priests to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the sisters to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the brothers to Saint Joseph, but he placed the entire Congregation under the patronage of Our Lady of Sorrows.
