Vocations for the Church

Statement on Vocations for the Church

The Marianites of Holy Cross, the Sisters of the Holy Cross, Sisters of Holy Cross and Priests and Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross, form what is known as the Family of Holy Cross.   Men and women religious of Holy Cross minister in Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia.  We are engaged in a variety of ministries fulfilling our commitment to continue the mission of Jesus in the spirit of Fr. Moreau.

Gratitude and listening are values that the Marianites strive to live in support of vocations for the Church.  While we are no longer accepting candidates for vowed membership, we support women and men in discerning God’s call.  We believe strongly in the call to live a vowed life and pray daily for vocations.

The joy for life and the opportunity to spend time with individuals calls each Marianite to be involved in vocation ministry.
