Pray for Vocations

October Prayer Intention of the Superior General

“Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us, and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs” (St. Francis).

 

Through the intercession of St. Francis of Assisi, let us pray that we be good stewards of all creation and give thanks to God for the wonderful handiwork He has entrusted to our care. Let us also implore God’s help for the protection of creation and to pardon us for the sins committed against the world in which we live.

 Welcome to the Midwest Province Website

 Mission Statement

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.
