Welcome to the Midwest Province Website
We take vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience as a way of giving ourselves more creatively and intimately to the mission of our Savior Jesus Christ, His Body – the Church, and the needs of the world.
We live in community as a visible witness to the commandments, which Jesus gives us to love one another. Community enables us, through prayer, personal support and finances to be accountable in our lives and mission.
The Congregation of Holy Cross identifies its concern for justice and peace in the world and the need of people to find ways to live an integrated life of faith and action. As Brothers of Holy Cross, we choose to respond to this concern through ministries which educate and sensitize persons to the need of the world for justice and peace.
We seek the Reign of God among all peoples. We work to enable other members of the laity to assume their God-given role in service of the Lord – some of whom will be lay Associates of the Midwest Province; others we hope, will choose to become religious.
