Crosier Fathers and Brothers

About Us

An essential element of who we are is expressed in our name, the Order of the Holy Cross. Our spirituality of the Cross is rooted in the Paschal Mystery. We recognize that there is much suffering and pain in the world, but we also believe the resurrection of Jesus guarantees that we will find hope and healing even in our suffering and pain. Because of this, we emphasize the glorious, or triumphant, Cross.
