Our Mission

As faith filled apostolic women religious, rooted in the spirituality of our founder, Blessed Basile Moreau, we, the Sisters of Holy Cross of the U.S. Region, dedicate ourselves to “Education for Liberation” among children, youth, women and those who are underserved in our society. We affirm our stewardship of the environment and of natural resources. We respond to this call in collaboration with Companions of the Holy Cross; Holy Cross Associates; Notre Dame College Alumni/ae and all friends of Holy Cross. We remain ever open to exploring new forms of membership in Holy Cross.

Sisters of Holy Cross

In 2017 we celebrated the 175th Anniversary of the founding of the three feminine branches of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Our hearts overflow with gratitude and humility to the God of our Yesterdays, Todays and Tomorrows, and to our Founder, Basil Moreau, who has entrusted us with the mission of "Liberation through Education."
