Our Ministries

The heart of our mission is to be Educators in the Faith, supporting the development of the whole person in mind, body and spirit. In partnership with hundreds of lay people, we conduct St. Edward’s University (Texas), Holy Cross College (Indiana) and more than one dozen Catholic high schools in the United States.

For many of us, mission takes place in the classroom. For others, our mission as Educators in the Faith takes place in parishes and social service agencies. In all of our ministries, we are deeply committed to promoting social justice and peace in the world. As disciples of Jesus, we reach out in a preferential way to the poor and oppressed.

Our mission can take us across borders of every sort. Today, Holy Cross members are living and working together in Brazil, Chile, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. The internationality of our Congregation provides us with extraordinary opportunities to make a difference in the world. Wherever we minister, we are reminded that the farther we go in giving of ourselves, the more we stand to receive.
