Our whole life is given in service. Crosiers actively minister to the needs of the Church and society in various ways.
We are Crosiers, members of the Canons Regular of the Order of the Holy Cross, dedicated to the spirituality of the glorious Cross. The Crosiers minister to help people find hope in suffering and joy from struggle.
Living Together for God Alone, Crosiers follow the Rule of St. Augustine. Our community life, along with our fidelity to public celebration of the liturgy of the Church and our rich contemplative prayer life form a substantial part of our ministry to the Church. Crosiers work in education, chaplain service, pastoral ministry, spiritual direction, campus ministry, jail ministry, immigration services, and elder care.
The U.S. Province is headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., with two Crosier priories in Onamia, Minn., and Phoenix. The international headquarters is in Rome, and Crosiers serve the Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Indonesia.
